The Religion curriculum at Otterbein University cultivates an understanding of the fundamental texts, basic beliefs and practices, historical development, and cultural contexts of the world’s religions with the goal that students discover for themselves a genuine appreciation of, and respect for, the rich diversity of religious perspectives.


Anyone wishing to understand more about what life is about will find the study of religion rewarding. The academic study of religion involves looking at religious beliefs and practices in a careful, analytic, and objective manner, and studying other religious traditions in their own contexts. The academic study of religion neither expects nor requires that students be believers in any religion.

The Religion curriculum at Otterbein University prepares students to apply for professional ministerial study at the seminary level or graduate study in religion and/or theology, as well as in a variety of humanities disciplines.
