|Field of Study:||Religion/Religious Studies
Social Sciences, Other
|Description:||The Religion, Society and Culture Department is a community of students and faculty engaged in the exploration of religion: the different ways faith is expressed and practiced, the historical and cultural contexts of religions and their texts, as well as the interconnections between religion and other areas of human life — for example, philosophical thought, the psychological, social, political and economic dimensions, and the presence of religion and religious symbols in literature and fine arts. To encourage creative and independent thinking, we emphasize the study of primary texts, rather than simply reading what other people have written about those texts.
