University Majors

University of California, San Diego
Religion, Study of B.A.

The Program engages in the academic study of religious phenomena; and it studies literature, history, and society in relation to religion. Faculty and students associated with the Program give primacy to humanistic and social scientific methods of study that have become established in the academic community during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The location of the Program in the Arts and Humanities Division and its use of courses from a variety of departments and divisions imply that neither the study of religion nor its data are the privileged possession of a single discipline. The hallmark of the Program is its interdisciplinary and interdepartmental structure. At UCSD, faculty from the departments of Anthropology, History, Literature, Philosophy, Political Science, Sociology, and Visual Arts provide students with the opportunity to examine religious artifacts, texts, institutions, and communities within a particular cultural and historical context and in the context of comparable manifestations within the general history of religions.
