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.

In the tradition of Jesuit education, we promote the informed exploration of faith and justice from ecumenical, interreligious, and global perspectives.

The study of religion is a quintessential task of a Catholic, Jesuit college. It invites you, in an academic context, into a long tradition of theological and historical questions about the nature of humanity in relation to God and to the world, and it engages you in the interreligious and intercultural encounter that is taking place today.
