Religion and Philosophy
The department offers a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree with a major in Philosophy and Religion. If a student has a second major that requires a Bachelor of Science degree, the department may approve a B.S. degree.
Majors and minors have the option of blending courses between philosophy and religion. Study in philosophy and religion prepares students for a variety of professions in health, business, government, as well as graduate study. Graduating majors will complete a traditional thesis with opportunities for public presentation and publication, or a culminating project with real-world focus and opportunities for practicum.

Majors will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of varieties of religious and philosophical traditions.
- Develop multiple critical skills and modes of expression.
- Explain how concepts and movements differ across practices, traditions and schools of thought.
