Philosophy and Religion — B.A.

The joint major in philosophy and religion gives students a special opportunity to explore in depth the philosophical aspects of religion and the religious aspects of philosophy. Students in this major acquire a grounding in philosophy that enables them to conduct philosophical analyses of religious claims, and a grounding in religious studies that makes them sensitive to the religious dimensions of philosophical systems and activities. This is an excellent major for students who have a strong personal interest in the preceding topics, or who would like to prepare themselves for graduate study or professional responsibility in the field of religion.
