While the Bachelor of Arts in Religion at Shenandoah University prepares you for seminary and life as ordained clergy in a Christian faith community, its commitment to critical thinking, independent learning, research and communication skills also prepares you for a wide range of professions where such skills are valued.


You’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the religious traditions of the world with a particular emphasis on the Christian tradition. You’ll learn to think clearly and critically about religious ideas; and, through the comparative study of philosophy, sacred texts, religious history, spirituality, theology and ethics, you’ll learn to think across disciplines and cultures.

The Religion major at Shenandoah University provides a rich encounter with the liberal arts. Along with the Christian Leadership Certificate Program, the Religion major prepares you for seminary and leadership in the 21st century church.
