The academic study of Religious Studies at McDaniel College exposes students to a variety of nonsectarian theoretical and methodological approaches they can apply to the study of religious practices, material objects, rituals, texts, beliefs, mythologies, and ethics. 


The Religious Studies Department at McDaniel College offers a variety of courses designed to encourage students to think critically and analytically about the world’s diverse religious traditions. Students of religion therefore gain more than knowledge of various religions; they learn valuable analytical skills and knowledge of world history that they can apply after graduation. Our faculty is trained in a variety of religious traditions, which allows the student to gain a comprehensive exposure to religions small and large, present and past, near and far.

Learning outcomes

McDaniel has been more intentional than many programs in building contemporary methods and theories in studying religions into its program. As a culminating phase, majors are encouraged to apply what they have learned in exploring a topic of their own choosing. When they graduate, we expect our majors to be able to identify an intellectual problem pertaining to religion as a human phenomenon, bring knowledge of religions and academic traditions of their study to bear upon it, and propose, communicate, and defend a solution.
