Religious Studies

What is Religious Studies?

Ever since humankind started to think, religion has been a fundamental part of our development. As people look into the vastness of space or witness the miracle of birth, they contemplate the meaning of life and their own mortality. It has always been this way.

In the 21st century, religion still addresses the same eternal human questions about life and death, values and relationships, right and wrong.
