B.A. in Philosophy and Religion

Our department provides a variety of ways in which to interact with Philosophy and Religion. We offer courses in religious thought, spanning from the West to the East with a B.A. degree in Philosophy and Religion. Additionally, we offer many related extracurricular activities in the department including our Philosophy and Religion Affinity circle research group, our Philosophy and Religion club, and regularly held department events such as our most recent "Meet the Philosophy and Religion Faculty" Roundtable discussion.
