Bachelors of Arts in Religion (Bachelor Degree)
The work of the Religion Studies Department of Muhlenberg College is the academic investigation of religious traditions in their thought and practice. Faculty and students study cultural and intellectual responses to basic questions of life and meaning that engage imagination, hope, and faith. Our discipline, exploring essential aspects of human experience, is inherently cross-cultural, multidisciplinary, and interpretive. Its geography is global; its chronology extends from antiquity to the present. We analyze texts, beliefs, rituals, arts, communities, cultures, and their integration into coherent worldviews. Our methodologies as well as our content interact with disciplines spanning the liberal arts curriculum from the humanities to the social sciences to the sciences. Majors in religion studies have the opportunity to deepen knowledge of their own religious heritage while exploring those of others cross-culturally. Pondering the basic questions of humankind and how they have been addressed through history, while refining critical and analytical skills, remains the heart of a liberal arts education, and this enterprise is central to the study of religion. Students of religion explore some of the most fascinating areas of human endeavor, imagination, hope, and faith, and inquire into the many understandings of the divine, or ultimate reality, and manifestations of sacred practice across cultures. Religion is a field of study that is both personally rewarding and highly relevant in its applications to the contemporary world. Religion studies majors and minors are well equipped to enter any field requiring a solid liberal arts preparation, including teaching, law, diplomatic service, human services, journalism, and business. Some pursue graduate studies in religion or a related field, while others choose to enter seminary. The skills acquired in the study of religion may be applied widely, and the special expertise provided by the major will prove invaluable as we enter the twenty-first century in an increasingly volatile world of intercultural encounter.
