|Description:||A Religious Studies major will prepare you to work in Canada’s multicultural society and participate meaningfully in the global economy. Knowledge about diverse religious traditions and their historical roots, and an increased awareness of different cultural values provides a solid foundation for a variety of careers and community engagement.
The study of religion(s) is interdisciplinary. It draws on a variety of disciplines from the social sciences and humanities such as sociology and philosophy to name just two. Students learn critical thought and analysis applied to a variety of issues across cultures and through time.
The world’s religions provide thoughtful models of how people have dealt with the fundamental questions of human life: death and suffering, and the meaning and purpose of life, for example. Learn how religions as disparate as Christianity and Buddhism have approached these questions. Art, literature, film, and culture have traditionally drawn on religious themes, and this remains the case today. A background in Religious Studies provides an insight into understanding these works
