About

Are you curious to learn about the different kinds of religions all around the world? Do you want to know more about where they came from, how they’ve impacted our cultures, and how they continue to influence Religions and Cultures world today at Nipissing University? 

Overview

Do you often wonder about fundamental questions on the meaning of life, what happens after we die, what it means to be a good person—and how each religion around the world deals with those questions?

Learning outcomes

We take Religions and Cultures field trips, invite guest lecturers and presenters, and incorporate discussion of current issues and events in classes. North Bay has many houses of worship, including synagogues, mosques, temples, and churches of various faiths, where you can study first-hand the traditions and teachings of many religions.​​

More and more, we’re offering students a chance to enrich their classroom experience with real-world opportunities.
