Welcome to the Religion Department
In a liberal arts college like Carleton, religion is understood as a field of inquiry within the humanities and social sciences. The historic traditions of the major religions are studied, as well as the problems and issues addressed by religion, such as the nature and goals of human existence, the problem of human estrangement, and the question of the objects of a person's ultimate allegiance.
