Description: Religion plays a major role in shaping and influencing various cultures, and historical and political movements across the globe. Thus, understanding religious traditions and their impact on diverse modern issues is vital preparation for building a career in our global marketplace. Religious Studies involves examining the history of religious traditions, comparing the ideas and values of different religious systems, and understanding the place and function of religion in society. Students of religion investigate why people are religious, where religion comes from, and how it should be defined and understood. Thus, Religious studies gives students opportunities to interact with many different local, regional, and global issues.

We offer Minor, Medial and Major Plans for undergraduate students, a wide range of popular elective courses and a unique and innovative one-year MA Program in Religious Studies. We welcome students in our mission to advance knowledge of the world’s religions and cultures at one of Canada’s leading research universities.
