Examining religions around the world gives students an objective setting where they can reflect on their own faith experiences. They can also better understand the context and cultures surrounding other traditions.
Thoughtful dialogue is an element of many courses, especially when points of conflict arise. Examples include the reality of God’s existence, or tensions between Christian or Muslim theologies and modernity.
Students can pursue their interests, whether those include classic texts, history, modern theology or alternative belief systems. Courses also explore the connections between religion and topics such as science and literature.
