Religious studies is a traditional component of a liberal arts education, but there's little traditional about the religious studies major at Connecticut College.
Here students will be encouraged to study religion as broadly as you would any other major, such as sociology or history. Students will learn to explore complex issues from different intellectual, ethical and intercultural perspectives, and they will hone the skills of analysis and problem solving. With this preparation, our majors find success in many venues, from graduate programs to studying and teaching religion, to varied careers in law, government, business and many other fields.
