The Study of Religion at Dartmouth

Religion lies at the core of all cultures and societies. An objective understanding of religion is thus a crucial component of a liberal arts education. The Department of Religion offers a rich list of courses on the major religions of the ancient and modern world, as well as courses on religion and ethics, the nature of religious belief, myth and ritual, religion and gender, and many other topics. The Department also offers a foreign study program at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Many students find that a major, modified major, or minor in Religion is an excellent choice of concentration in the liberal arts. Watch our brief video here:
