This program provide both variety and depth of study, offering courses in Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam; in the religious traditions of China, Japan, India, and the United States; in biblical studies; and in ethics and the relationships between religion and contemporary society. Many of our courses are organized around topical issues, including death and dying, women and religion, religion and ecology, and religion and racism. The flexibility of the Religion program makes it an excellent choice for students who want to build professional depth and expertise. Many of our students take Religion as a double major or minor to add to their understanding of other fields. A number of courses from related disciplines (e.g. History, Philosophy, and English) can also be counted towards the Religion major and minor. The program strives to give the students a foundation in understanding religious phenomena, the ability to think clearly about the social and personal issues religion addresses, and preparation for a variety of careers. The Religion program provides variety and depth in its course offerings. All members of the department teach both introductory and upper level courses. This assures a quality learning experience for students and is one of the reasons why students rate our department very high in terms of excellence in the classroom. The Religion program also participates in cooperative overseas programs. They can study in such places as India, Japan, and Israel earning credit through programs sponsored by other American universities. Graduates of the Religion program at CMU will find career opportunities in a variety of areas. Some of these may require additional education.
