Religion & Philosophy

Consider the truly big questions in our religion and philosophy courses. What is the meaning of life? Why do we exist? How can we live our own beliefs while honoring those from other diverse traditions? Examine a wide range of faiths and philosophical perspectives in an environment that supports inquiry, pluralism and deep understanding.
