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 program in women's studies at the master's level is designed for students from selected disciplines in arts, education, health sciences, law, social sciences, and counselling and spirituality (Saint Paul University), who have an interest in women's studies. These students have the opportunity to combine advanced studies in their primary program with analyses from a women's studies perspective. The degree awarded is a master's degree in the primary program with a "specialization in Women's Studies".
