Bachelor of Arts, Religion

Saint Leo’s B.A. in Religion invites you to think critically about your own assumptions; about God, faith, other people, and the way you act in relation to the world around you. While exploring the evolution of Christianity in the Middle East and the role of the Catholic Church in America, you will draw connections to contemporary culture and explore the challenges posed by secularism, materialism, and cyberculture. You will develop respect for the vast world of faith, including Christianity, Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism.

This degree program emphasizes the importance of informed and sustained personal reflection on religious and ethical issues. Religion is a field that encompasses philosophical, moral, literary, historical, and psychological approaches to its subject matter. It encourages you to develop a more profound and challenging view of human beings and the multidimensional reality we live in.
