This Religion major at Seton Hall University offers rigorous study of religion, theology, and ethics in global, ecumenical, and inter-religious context.


Through the study of sacred texts and scriptures, systematic and philosophical theology, ecumenical theology, philosophy of religion, ecclesiastical history, and religious and social ethics, students examine the essential role that Christianity (especially Catholicism, but also Protestantism and Eastern Orthodoxy) and non-Christian religions (especially Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism) play in the political, economic, and cultural arenas of human life. Post-graduation, the possibilities are endless. 

Key Features 

  • This Religion degree from Seton Hall University is an excellent foundation for law school, medical school, and graduate studies in theology and ethics, religious education, and seminary studies. 
  • But what you learn about religion and human life is critically useful in many other fields: nursing, politics, business, technology, international relations, conflict resolution, education, non-profit/NGO administration, and social work.
