History, Philosophy & Religion

The history, philosophy, and religion department embraces a wide range of disciplines.

In order to meet the needs of today's student to examine questions of meaning and belief, of truth and value in the living of life, philosophy and religion courses provide experiences of critical search and questioning in matters of ultimate concern. The student is urged, within the context of the liberal arts, to develop a personal understanding of the religious and philosophical dimensions of authentic human existence and a personal appreciation of the various traditions in which these dimensions have found expression, particularly the traditions of Christianity.

In order to give the student a knowledge of the past, an appreciation of cultural heritage and the tools for dealing with the complex problems and issues of modern society, the curriculum of the social sciences offers courses from the disciplines of geography, gerontology, history, human services, law, political science, psychology and sociology.
