Program Information

School:Laurentian University/Universite Laurentienne
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Religion/Religious Studies
Description:The Religious Studies program examines the variety of beliefs and behaviour through which people around the world express spiritual impulses, both in formal religions and everyday life. What do people believe is sacred? What do they think about the meaning and purpose of existence? How do they live out these beliefs in their day-to-day rituals and behaviour?

As an academic discipline, religious studies does not promote nor undermine any particular religion or worldview. It approaches the study of religion as a social phenomenon. recognizing that religions have occupied a very central place in virtually all civilizations, the program focuses on the relationship between religion and culture.

The Department focuses on three main areas of study: Judaeo-Christian tradition, world religions, and religion in modern culture.
