Religious Studies Banner

The Elms College religious studies program allows you to study a subject that speaks to the person, the community, and the world. Students can study diverse religious traditions such as Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism as a foundation for graduate study in comparative religion, the role of religion in society, and interfaith dialogue.

The undergraduate major in religious studies meets the needs of students who want to explore the foundations of Christianity, with an eye toward graduate study, as well as the Catholic who might be interested in ministry as a lay or ordained member of the Church.

Religious studies graduates often complete advanced degrees and work in churches, community service organizations, and nonprofit organizations that improve the quality of life for people everywhere.
