Religious Studies


The religious studies program affords students the opportunity to pursue studies in either religious studies or biblical studies, leading, if they so desire, to a minor in either of these areas. To minor in either religious studies or biblical studies, a student needs 18 credits, 12 in the selected minor area and 6 in the alternative area.

The Religious Studies curriculum provides an opportunity for a multi-faceted reflection on the religious dimension of the human experience. Students are introduced to the religious patterns of humanity in a worldwide perspective. The tradition of the Dominican Order includes “disputatio” (respectful dialogue) and the search for “veritas” (truth) in all disciplines. The concepts of the sacred work of “study,” one of St. Dominic’s Nine Ways of Prayer, is examined as the education philosophy of the founders of Mount Saint Mary College.
