Why Study Religion?

Religion explores many of the deepest questions about the human condition: Where do we come from? What happens after we die? What is the meaning of life?

By studying different religious doctrines, rituals, stories and scriptures throughout time, you learn how religious traditions shape all aspects of life — politics, science, literature, art, law, economics — and continue to transform themselves.

At AddRan College of Liberal Arts, you’ll learn to approach religious traditions historically, textually, philosophically and comparatively. You’ll consider the role of religion in society, culture and individual life. And you’ll investigate issues that really matter. Our award-winning professors will draw you into an exploration of the subjects they love.

With a degree in religion, you’ll acquire knowledge and skills — cultural competency, analytical thinking, communication skills and writing skills — that you can apply to any endeavor. You could pursue career paths in teaching, medicine, ministry, social service, law, journalism, international business, diplomacy, chaplaincy — just to name a few.
