Religion & Humanities

The classes are small, but the topics aren’t just big – they’re worldwide. When you study religion, you challenge your own perceptions about faith and belief through the study of the faiths and belief of others. Like we said, it’s big, and you may have to talk some of this stuff out. That’s called critical thinking, and that’s what we’re here for.
