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.

Founded in 1912, Loyola University New Orleans is located in America’s most interesting city – the birthplace of jazz – and is the only Jesuit university in America that offers a College of Music and Fine Arts. Loyola is committed to its Catholic, Jesuit identity and offers a wide array of programs that prepare its students for ethical leadership, personal, and professional excellence.
