Religious Studies

Religion is one of the most important pursuits of humankind, having a profound impact on human history through art, philosophy, politics, and the way societies and groups are organized and behave. You will have the opportunity to investigate how the different religious traditions of the world seek and understand Ultimate Reality, how this understanding influences human action and belief about the world, and how historical contexts influence religious thought and practice. By learning about the different religious traditions of the world and their historical contexts, you will cultivate a critical appreciation of diverse religious traditions. You will conduct this study from the perspective of different departments at Purdue, such as English, History, Philosophy, and Sociology and Anthropology.
