Study a Variety of Religious Traditions

The Academic Study of Religion invites you to learn about major world religions — Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Indigenous Religions. It focuses on beliefs and rituals, and what these can tell us about perennial human concerns, such as individual and collective identities and ethical and political foundations of societies.

Become a more Informed Person

Studying world religions can give you a deeper comprehension of yourself and your most basic behaviours and values, and allow you to understand those of others, fostering the mutual respect that allows our diverse democratic society to exist. It can help you become a more complete citizen by inviting you to think deeply about what it means to live religiously, in the past and the present.
