The field of religious studies focuses on the attempt to understand the world’s religions as expressive of what various peoples have come to regard as sacred. As such, the field of religious studies is interdisciplinary, pluralistic, critical and global in its outreach and aspirations. While the department’s concern for the sacred has been shaped by the cultural traditions of Christianity, religious studies assumes that the study of Christianity, like the study of any other religious tradition, is best undertaken on the basis of a broad and comparative understating of all the world’s major religions.
