Studying Religion in Culture
And you don’t have to be religious to study religion.
We study religion as one aspect of human cultures, not something that exists separately from them. We use the same tools and methods employed in other fields — like anthropology, history, and political science — to study human behavior.
So no, you don’t have to be religious to study religion at UA — you just have to be curious about how cultures work.
We offer a major and minor in religious studies, as well as minors in Asian and Judaic studies.
Our master’s program in religion in culture is unlike other graduate programs in religious studies.
