Religious Studies

The Department of Religious Studies brings a variety of perspectives to the study of a significant aspect of human existence: religion. At HWS, the study of religion is intrinsically multicultural and interdisciplinary as students learn through different academic approaches like historical, ethical, political and theological angles.
