Religious Studies

The Religious Studies offerings are integral to the liberal arts core of Stritch. Through Religious Studies courses, the student is challenged to examine the religious dimension of human existence.

In Religious Studies, students explore the manner in which religious traditions and symbols have provided, and continue to offer, an interpretation of human life. Offerings include courses that explore foundational elements of the broad Christian (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, etc.) tradition as well as World Religious traditions.  The student will find also find courses on Christian Scripture and morality as well as specific courses on Judaism and Islam.  These course offerings allow students the opportunity of exposure to a variety of religious traditions.

The Religious Studies offerings provide a balanced selection of upper division courses that enable students to acquire a more in-depth background as a major or minor in Religious Studies. Students who major in Religious Studies are prepared to pursue various careers ranging from teaching to parish or societal ministries.
