Studies of religions



Religion has an increasingly important role in popular culture and media. Religious beliefs in the world's population play a significant role in conflict, peace building, terrorism and international development. With increasing globalisation and countries becoming more diverse and complex, there's a growing need for experts in religion. This multidisciplinary major includes subjects with a focus on religion from sociology and anthropology to history and literary studies.
