welcome

to the Religious Studies Department at Edgewood College.

Rooted in the Catholic and Dominican traditions where "faith seeks understanding," Religious Studies at Edgewood College provides exciting opportunities to examine the religious experience and its multiple expressions.

Through academic inquiry, scholarly research, community-based learning, and intellectual reflection, students explore the religious dimensions of human experience, harmonize their own religious commitments and traditions with their intellectual, critical, and cultural development, and deepen their own spiritualities with a vision toward justice and peace.

At the same time, all are called to develop a genuine respect and appreciation for the truths and values expressed in the traditions and spiritualities of others.
