The Department of Classics and Religious Studies (sector: Religious Studies) focuses on the study of the religious phenomenon through teaching and research in the same manner and on the same level as any other category of facts accessible to human experience and observation. The disciplines that play a role in the study of religions are primarily of a historical, sociological, psychological and anthropological nature. Such a study must take into account the plurality of religious traditions and expressions in society and examine the relationships among them. Research on the meaning of religious phenomena is accomplished through analysis and comparison of the various means of religious expression, both in the past and present. No tradition is considered normative.The Department participates in collaborative programs in Women’s Studies and in Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the MA level. The collaborative master’s in Medieval and Renaissance Studies (MDR) has two goals: To offer at the graduate level a multi-disciplinary education in Medieval and Renaissance Studies; and to teach students the theoretical approaches and methods of research specific to the study of the period.
