The religion faculty welcome all students, wherever they may be in their personal journeys — because the study of religion enriches these journeys and is fundamental to a liberal arts education.
Why Study Religion?

The Religion Department equips students of all backgrounds and traditions to interpret, evaluate, and respond to religious ideas and practices. The work of the department is shaped by the college’s Lutheran heritage and commitments as they unfold in a world of many faiths.

Students often find that their religion major complements their work in other disciplines and helps them to develop a focus for their entire liberal arts education. The department prepares students to pursue a range of vocational and career paths, including leadership roles in academia, religious organizations, education, business, journalism, law, medicine, and community and social-justice activism.
