Society, Culture & Religion - The big questions explored.

Celebrating our new name — Society, Culture & Religion

The Religious Studies undergraduate degree programs have a NEW name and a NEW look! Join the Department of Religious Studies on Wednesday, March 20, 4 - 6 p.m. in the foyer of University Hall as we celebrate the re-naming of our undergraduate programs.

Mar 18, 2019

Our Society, Culture & Religion programs are designed to push our students to become critical thinkers, engaged citizens, and effective communicators.

The big questions explored!

How should we live? Where are we going? How do we know what is good? Where did we come from? Is this all there is? Who are we? What’s it all about? These questions have preoccupied some of the world’s greatest thinkers across cultures and through time. The Society, Culture & Religion undergraduate program has no definitive answers to these questions but offers the opportunity to explore them in a program tailored to your interests.

Come talk to us! Find out how your degree or minor in Society, Culture & Religion can lead to a greater appreciation of human beings’ search for meaning and an enhanced understanding of how the various answers to the big questions have shaped the world we live in today. For more information, contact or Dr. Philippa Carter, Chair of Undergraduate Affairs at

When: Wednesday, March 20, 4 - 6 p.m.
