About

As an academic discipline, the Religious Studies program at Laurentian University does not promote nor undermine any particular religion or worldview. It approaches the study of religion as a social phenomenon, recognizing that religions have occupied a very central place in virtually all civilizations.

Overview

The program focuses on the relationship between religion and culture. It is administered by a Joint Department of Religious Studies, comprised of the departments of Religious Studies from the University of Sudbury, Huntington University and Thorneloe University, all situated on the Laurentian campus.

The  Religious Studies program at Laurentian University focuses on four main areas of study: Biblical Studies, World Religions, Western Religions, and Religion and Culture. It offers a broad overview of the discipline with courses including Christian thought, Buddhism, Indigenous tradition and culture, Eastern mysticism, the paranormal, bioethics, social issues, Western morality, Judaism, Hinduism, Apocalyptic and the Book of Revelation.

Career Opportunities

An education in Religious Studies will help students develop critical thinking, cross-cultural understanding, open mindedness, and clear communications skills. These skills will contribute to the success of those who plan to pursue Religious Studies at the graduate level, but are applicable to a variety of other professions such as political sciences, law, health care, medicine, education, international relations, journalism, social work, etc. This program will also benefit students who are interested in other fields such as History, Literature, Indigenous Studies, etc.
