|Field of Study:||Religion/Religious Studies
|Description:||The study of religion is distinguished by the uniqueness of its subject matter and the diversity of its methods. Its subject matter is global: the scriptures, institutions, teachings, rituals, devotions, iconography, and moral injunctions of all the world’s religious traditions. It addresses this subject matter with the full range of investigative tools available by the various disciplines, especially modern historical and social-scientific human studies.
The study of religion prepares students for a wide range of careers (e.g. social work, law, politics from the local to the international level, teaching, medicine, leadership in religious organizations). Combined with appropriate language preparation, it can also open out into graduate work at the master's and doctoral levels.
