Explore religion from a cultural, political, sociological, and spiritual perspective by enrolling in the Religion BA course at the American Public University. You also gain an understanding of the theological principles of religious thought and expression.
APU’s multidisciplinary Bachelor of Arts in Religion examines the origin, history, beliefs, and practices of major religions of the world as you learn the role faith plays in developing a worldview. This online program encourages you to share perspective as both a participant and a challenger to religious beliefs, as you dig deep to consider religion’s influence in society.
The capstone project in this religion BA program will involve an intensive study of a major figure, philosophical movement, or contemporary issue in religion.
