Understanding religion and culture is essential not just for being a global citizen in an age of interconnections, but also for being a well-informed citizen of Canada.
We live in a world of many religions and of diverse religious cultures. If issues in Religion and Culture excite you, this program offers courses that provide an excellent basis for engaging debates. You'll discover and discuss issues about human rights, religious rights and freedoms, the status of women, identity and belonging, intergroup conflict and coexistence in a multicultural society.
From our popular first and second-year intro courses that explore the rich diversity of religious interactions with culture in many different regions of the world, to our fourth-year capstone course that allows students to develop an individualized research project connected to their professional interests. Graduates of the Religion and Culture program include, but are not limited to, social workers, teachers, professors, counsellors, librarians, editors, government workers, community organizers, film makers, artists, and writers.
You will learn essential, transferable skills to prepare you for a variety of professional careers: critical thinking, effective writing, competent oral presentation, interpersonal communication, and the conduct of advanced research (e.g., collecting data, assessing the state of knowledge, analyzing and evaluating diverse claims). Understanding religion and culture is essential not just for being a global citizen in an age of interconnections, but also for being a well-informed citizen of Canada.
