Philosophy & Religion

We are a joint philosophy-religion department, offering a major and minor in both Philosophy and Religion.

If you choose to pursue a course of study in our department you will find:

  • Class sizes that facilitate meaningful student-to-teacher and student-to-student interactions.
  • A curriculum that requires you to have an active role in shaping your educational experience.
  • An approach to philosophy and religion that promotes cross-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary studies.
  • Opportunities to assist with faculty research and contribute to other faculty and departmental projects.

Our six full-time faculty members are dedicated to creating an exceptional learning environment, one that fosters effective collaboration, critical and creative engagement, empathetic understanding, and personal and social responsibility.
