Majoring in Religion can take you where you want to go!

Religion is one of the most potent constituents of a culture. Its complexity and importance can be seen in that it represents, at the same time, the most sublime and the most horrific aspects of humanity, the most creative and the most destructive impulses of cultures. On the one hand, since the dawn of human consciousness, religion has raised the deepest questions human beings can ask and has proved to be a vital source for some of humanity’s greatest artistic, literary, intellectual, political, scientific and social achievements.

The Department of Religion is part of the School of Arts and Sciences

As an Religion major in the School of Arts and Sciences, you’ll have full access to a liberal arts education that spans 34 programs for undergraduates. You will acquire both the specialized knowledge of the field you choose to study in depth, and broad knowledge of the world from the renowned scholar-teachers at Rutgers. You’ll graduate ready to meet contemporary challenges in your workplace, in your hometown, and in the global community.
