Philosophy & Religion
Looking for Deeper Meaning
The Philosophy & Religion concentration within Humanities & Arts offers students a way to examine their own belief systems and those of others, discovering the deeper meaning behind the world we live in and how it fits in with their scientific exploits. This intertwining of religious and philosophical ideas with social issues and science ultimately creates a better-rounded student.
These Inquiry Seminars may combine the topics of philosophy and religion or address them separately. Strengths in this area include environmental philosophy, biomedical and religious ethics, and the philosophy of knowledge and religion. The Inquiry Seminar is the final part of the Humanities & Arts Requirement.
