The Religious Studies Department encourages students to examine how religious beliefs, practices and values of contemporary and historical cultures shape and are shaped by societal factors, long-standing traditions, and distinctive forms of literary and artistic expression. Offering a bachelor of arts degree in religious studies, the department explores the myriad religious and spiritual traditions of the human landscape.
Students find courses in Islam, East Asian Religions, Prophets and Prophecy, and Native American Religious Traditions as stimulating as more traditional classes in Hebrew Bible and New Testament Studies.
Religious studies majors and minors in good standing are often invited to join the Alpha Epsilon Sigma Chapter of Theta Alpha Kappa, Centenary College's official chapter of the National Honor Society for Religious Studies and Theology. Members discuss current trends in religious studies, submit papers for publication in the Journal and attend regional and national seminars.
