Many Hall, home of the
Department of Religious Studies
The Department of Religious Studies promotes
descriptive and comparative studies of religion by describing and
analyzing cross-cultural beliefs, practices, and institutions, both
past and present. The Department is one of the principal arenas
in the University where students learn of the history, diversity,
and ingenuity of human systems of thought and practice.
