At Carleton, religion is viewed as a field that has intrinsic importance and significance in human life and culture. 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. Religion is interdisciplinary in nature and draws upon many disciplines, including the social sciences, history, philosophy, theology, and literary and linguistic studies. Students are encouraged to participate in overseas study.
