Why religion? Religion is a major source of inspiration and controversy that informs the history, literature, art, politics, economics and social structure of human culture.
The study of religion focuses on a range of traditions spanning from antiquity to modernity, and it employs numerous methodologies including, but not limited to, literary, historical, anthropological, social-scientific and philosophical. In an increasingly global society, awareness of religious traditions and the analytical skills to analyze their discourse provides a foundation for those who aim to participate responsibly in our complex world.
