The Department of Religious Studies investigates a variety of religious traditions, movements, and expressions that play important roles either historically or in contemporary cultures.

The Department teaches courses on such traditions as Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Shinto, and Taoism. Historical studies include courses about religions in African, Asian, Middle East, European, and American (especially United States) history. Cultural and theoretical studies include courses on religious philosophies, ethics, and theologies; political, social, and psychological accounts of religious life; the role religion plays in politics, economics, social movements, arts, sciences, and diverse forms of personal conduct.
