Religion in

Mission Statement

Many Hall, home of the
Department of Religious Studies

The Department of Religious Studies promotes descriptive and comparative studies of religion by describing and analyzing cross-cultural beliefs, practices, and institutions, both past and present. The Department is one of the principal arenas in the University where students learn of the history, diversity, and ingenuity of human systems of thought and practice.
