Overview

Course Description

  • Can you understand the world you live in without studying religion? Probably not. Underlying most human endeavors – whether politics, business, medicine, psychology, family life and personal fulfillment-is a complex array of religious beliefs, spiritual yearning and existential questions.
  • Through the course of their studies, our students gain an inter-cultural literacy and an appreciation for the worldviews of other peoples and cultures, as well as their own.
  • Courses of the Religious Studies program from University of Redlands offer you a variety of disciplinary perspectives on religion, including the spiritual, historical, literary, ethical, doctrinal, contemplative and social dimensions of religious people and cultures.
  • Engaging the study of religions through academic inquiry, we seek to generate respect for the religious lives of all traditions.
  • While many students find the study of religion fruitful for reflecting on their own religious identity, no particular religious position is privileged or assumed in any of our courses.
