Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Philosophy & Religion

Religion is a collection of ideas, practices, and systems that are organized and shared. It is most common for these ideas to refer to a belief and worship of an external controlling force, such as a god or supernatural entity. Philosophy (from Greek, meaning "love of wisdom"), in its simplest definition, is the study of existence, reason, knowledge, values, and the mind.

About This Program

The program in Philosophy and Religion is designed to accommodate students who want to concentrate in either philosophy or religion. The program is designed to engage the student in an examination of the chief rival philosophical and religious approaches to life (including their historical, cultural, social and practical imports); to develop within the student an enlarged capacity for logical, reflective, coherent reasoning; and to encourage the student to work out a conceptual framework for his or her life commitment.

The program is preparatory for advanced training in other fields, such as law, education, international relations, statecraft, intellectual history, philosophy, religious studies and theology.
