Overview

The contemporary study of religion, however, is largely the study of people and of the unique ways that people make meaning in their lives.

The main goals of the Religious Studies program at University of Wisconsin Oshkosh are to study how individuals and communities around the world do this through their use of religious language, imagery and performance.

In studying the five major World Religions – Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism – students will engage specific issues that pertain to the Holocaust, the roles of women in the Bible, Islamic modernism, Hindu myth and ritual and Zen Buddhist practice among others.
