Religion and Philosophy

Philosophy and Goals

The Department of Philosophy and Religion offers introductory and upper-division level courses in philosophy and religion. The department currently offers a minor in the area of Christian Studies designed to provide students with insight into the significant role of religion in the shaping of contemporary culture, with primary emphasis being given to the impact of Christianity on Western culture.

The department also provides academic support for the Christian Education and Leadership Program which seeks to (1) acquaint students with the historical values of Christianity, (2) train them in the exercise of spiritual disciplines designed to integrate faith values with the whole of life, and (3) provide practical training through local, national, and international service-learning projects. Students accepted into the program receive a scholarship which requires the completion of specific program requirements.
