Philosophy - Religious Studies


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Philosophy involves reasoning and thinking critically about all areas of life.  The philosophy concentration in religious studies provides students with background facts about the metaphysical, epistemic, and moral commitments of various religious traditions. Its purpose is helping students to understand and evaluate these traditions and to integrate them into a coherent view of ourselves and the world.

This program is designed for the student who does intend to transfer to a baccalaureate degree program.
