Welcome

Mission

The Department of Religion promotes the Catholic Lasallian mission of the University by critically examining the central questions and frameworks of the world’s religious traditions manifested in sacred texts, doctrines and practices; and by exploring how religious ways of knowing and being affect social, cultural, and ethical life. We prepare students for life in the multicultural and religiously plural 21st century by equipping them with a religious literacy that understands the historical developments, contemporary significance, and distinctiveness of at least one of the world’s religions while also cultivating students’ capability to engage religious difference in a self-reflective and socially conscious way.
