Your study of religion will challenge as well as confirm your thoughts about religious traditions. You will take a critical look at the religious beliefs, practices, and institutions that have shaped our world. You will also learn to understand and appreciate your own tradition as well as unfamiliar traditions. You explore religious traditions with curiosity combined with intellectual discipline. Through religious studies your ideas about religion will deepen.
Whether you go on to graduate school for the academic study of religion or to seminary, religion courses at WCU prepare you to discuss and engage religious issues from the world’s religions.
