Religious Studies

Whether we are concerned with international affairs or our everyday experience in multicultural cities like Hamilton, religious diversity is a key element of social interaction. How do religions motivate people in a range of activities, both creatively and destructively? How do they inform the arts, politics, and personal and social ethics? How do religious traditions relate to the broad range of human experience and spirituality both in the past and the present in different parts of the globe?

The Department of Religious Studies at McMaster has earned a reputation as one of the premier departments of its kind in North America. Learn about the major world religions through a variety of disciplines - anthropological, literary, historical, theological, and more.
