We view religion as a significant dimension of all human cultures, past and present.
The academic study of religion offers an interdisciplinary approach to the ways in which human thought, values and ceremonies, literature, architecture, art, community and politics are woven into a cultural religious fabric.
Classes investigate beliefs and practices of world religions, including Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism. Comparative religious study is emphasized.
Religion courses at Illinois Wesleyan will develop further your writing and speaking skills through papers and in-class discussions.
