The Philosophy and Religion Department

The Philosophy and Religion Department seeks to foster philosophy and the study of religions and to encourage a critical appreciation of the deepest issues of human experience of the past and present, in our own culture and globally. It plays a vital role in the University’s effort to stimulate intellectual curiosity, imagination, rational thinking, and thoughtful expression in its students and in the community. As a joint department that brings together two disciplines -- philosophy and religious studies -- we encourage interdisciplinary and creative approaches to teaching and research. Founded in 1963, the department has grown from three faculty members to include fifteen full-time faculty offering over sixty undergraduate courses.
