The Department of Religious Studies at Loyola University New Orleans, rooted in the Catholic and Jesuit context of education, encourages the academic study of religion in a spirit of free intellectual inquiry. As the 34th congregation of the Society of Jesus states: “To be religious today is to be interreligious.” And so from the very beginning, students are invited to consider their faith, in a global context, to deepen their appreciation of themselves in a religious world, and to offer the results of their revelations for the benefit of all.
The study of theology embraces diverse interests and diverse faith backgrounds. Some students come to gain a deeper grasp of what it is that they believe and their reasons for believing it. Others want to explore how religious teachings and ethics intersect with fields like medicine or psychology, while yet others study theology because the Jewish and Christian traditions have had such vast influence on the culture in which we live, including musical traditions from classical to hip-hop, politics, literature, the visual arts, and economics.
All the degree programs offered by the Department of Theology, from undergraduate core classes to advanced Ph.D. seminars are designed to provide students with resources for the analysis of religion; for investigation of the sources, historical development and contemporary practices of particular religious traditions - principally the Roman Catholic tradition, although attention is given to other Christian traditions as well as Judaism, Islam and eastern religions; and for the critical appropriation of these traditions for one's personal faith and for sympathetic appreciation of the beliefs of others.
Religious studies is more than just learning about faith traditions. Religion is an integral part of the social fabric that can help us better understand other cultures, and is intimately connected to many elements of community, including politics, economics, class structures and armed conflict. Le Moyne's interdisciplinary approach to religious studies, coupled with our strong liberal arts foundation, means that you will be encouraged to think more critically and creatively about all beliefs and practices, and become better equipped to respond thoughtfully to the complexities of the contemporary world. Being religiously literate is essential to becoming a compassionate agent for change in our troubled, yet wondrous, world.
