Overview

Beginning in the introductory course, students examine issues related to religious thought and practice within their own religious tradition and within a global context, as well as gender, race and sexuality and other theoretical approaches. Courses cover the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, the Judaeo-Christian tradition, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and special topics. 

Faculty members combine a theoretical and analytical approach with sensitivity to a life of faith and discernment. A Religion program at Transylvania University will help you become theologically grounded, historically informed and capable of reading and interpreting the texts of various religious traditions and our world and its myriad cultures and traditions. Because studies in religion can help you better negotiate a complex and interrelated world, the religion program offers May term travel courses that purposefully integrate the classroom and context.
