Understanding the power of religion and spirituality has become a pressing need in our contemporary circumstances. Religions offer answers to “the big questions” about the purpose of life. Majoring in religion readies students to interact intelligently and knowledgeably about religion and its impact in social life and in the areas of politics, science, history and culture. The major or minor is also appropriate for persons preparing for further theological study and church-related vocations. Double majoring is an exciting interdisciplinary option. Recent religion majors have also majored in Accounting, Computer Science, History, Literature, Philosophy and Christian Education.
