Welcome to the Department of Religion!

The Department of Religion at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offers students opportunities to study diverse religious traditions from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Our curriculum encompasses the study of religion in many different cultures and historical periods as well as the impact of religion in such areas as ethics, politics, literature, intellectual history, philosophy, and society.

Religious Studies offers important backgrounds for many disciplines in the humanities, business, and public service, as well as deeper insight into forces that are shaping societies today. There are numerous career opportunities for people with an education in Religious Studies. For information, see this website sponsored by the American Academy of Religion: http://www.studyreligion.org/why/index.html.

Please contact us directly to learn more about the Department of Religion.

We look forward to meeting you

Professor David H. Price
Head, Department of Religion
