Some questions are meant to be answered while others are meant to be pondered. The disciplines of philosophy and religion explore and debate concepts that are often not definitively knowable. Though supported by evidence, they depend on faith and reasoned argument. These questions, ideas, and belief hold profound influence on society. On a personal level, they may be highly meaningful to you – even the basis for how you live your life. Studying them in-depth can encourage you in your own understanding of the world and beyond.
As a philosophy and religion major, you will critically examine the moral, philosophical and spiritual dimensions of the world’s cultures. You’ll learn how different schools of thought have influenced society and shaped your own perspectives.
