Deepen your spiritual and intellectual life.
Through the study of Scripture, the moral life, systematic and pastoral theology, religious history, world religions, and spirituality, the Religious Studies Department will challenge you to face the ultimate meaning of human existence and its relationship to the transcendent. While our theological focus is the Roman Catholic tradition, we offer majors and minors in Catholic Studies and Religious Studies. It is also possible to achieve a major in Jewish Studies through affiliation with the Laura and Alvin Siegal College of Judaic Studies.
Ursuline’s Religious Studies faculty have addressed the United Nations, studied at Oxford with the National Endowment for the Humanities, been interviewed on TV, blogged on feminism and religion, and published several books.
Religious Studies students prepare for careers in ministry, religious education administration and teaching, church/religious architecture, religious art, missionary work, religious journalism, academic scholarship and teaching, parish administration, and social justice advocacy. Others move into seemingly unrelated fields ranging from law to communications to medicine, strengthened and enlightened by a broad liberal arts perspective.
