History of Religions - Major

History of Religions explores the importance of religion in our world. It situates religion in the historical, cultural, and socio-political contexts that together constitute the story of humanity, and acknowledges how religion shapes and is shaped by this story. The program’s approach involves (but is not limited to) the study of particular religious traditions, the comparative study of religion, and the study of the religious dimension of human experience and of common historical phenomena. Its subject includes ancient and indigenous religions as well as the present-day world religions.
