Advanced Religious Studies

GOALS

As a Catholic and Marianist institution, the University regards religious studies and philosophy as having special roles in the undergraduate curriculum and in the attainment of University-wide learning outcomes. Students are expected to deepen their knowledge of the religious and philosophical traditions that inform the Catholic and Marianist education. Advanced study, especially when conducted through interdisciplinary courses, assists students in constructing integrated knowledge of the central human questions examined in a liberal education. 

REQUIREMENTS

Every student is required to take six hours of courses in the areas of religious studies or philosophy and three hours in history beyond the 100 level. The University expects students to engage in liberal learning that connects theory and practice, and to draw upon the resources of the Catholic intellectual tradition as they consider how to lead wise and ethical lives of leadership and service.
