Department Information

The original meaning of the word philosophy is “the love of wisdom.” Philosophy therefore represents an ongoing process of critical and speculative inquiry into questions representing people’s deepest concerns, such as the meaning of existence, the nature of reality, and the grounds of human conduct. The religious studies specialization is a path of inquiry into the nature of religion, its pervasive role in human life, and its contribution to understanding human existence and destiny.
