Religion has been and continues to be an important force in shaping the world of the religious and those without religious commitments at all. The Religious Studies track in the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies leads students to examine religion across time and civilizations, providing them an arena for a broad intellectual investigation of religious beliefs and practices from a secular standpoint. The program aims to develop the self-understanding and skills in reasoning and expression that are the hallmarks of a traditional liberal arts education. Although the major will be of particular interest to those who plan further study for entry into the clergy, it serves any student who seeks a liberal arts education as preparation for careers in law, publishing, government and other fields.
