Program for the Study of Religion

Scholars study religion because we are fascinated by human beings. We seek insight into what people believe; what they desire from life; why they act as they do; how they understand and cope with calamity and suffering.

For this reason, a scholarly focus on religion fosters an understanding of the human condition as well as the history of human culture. The study of religion is a scholarly field dedicated to problems, questions, and frames for intellectual attention regarding how human beings inhabit their social and cultural worlds.
