Religion and Culture courses at Baruch College are taught by faculty from various disciplines and departments including history, modern languages and comparative literature, philosophy, psychology, and sociology and anthropology.


Religion is one of the most powerful and complex forces in human history. 


  • To study religions from earliest times to the present and how they have shaped and been shaped by the forces of history (among them: nationalism, war, the challenge of secularism, and technology), the Religion and Culture Program at Baruch College presents an interdisciplinary approach to the study of religious and cultural histories, doctrines, concepts, and practices.

Programme Structure

  • Religion and Culture may be taken as an ad hoc major. They must first, however, develop an approved written rationale for their selected course pattern. 
  • Students interested in developing a program for this major should meet with Professor Ken Guest.
