The Department of Religious Studies 

The Department of Religious Studies at Brown University provides students with an understanding of diverse religious traditions, an exposure to a variety of approaches employed within the academic study of religion, as well as an opportunity to explore diverse intellectual, social-theoretical, and ethical issues that arise when one considers the various manifestations of religion in human affairs. The graduate program in Religious Studies, with select areas of concentrated strength, is one of the finest in the world, and the undergraduate program is broad and creative, serving a large number of students both inside and outside the concentration.  Religious Studies actively seeks to be an open, inclusive department that is committed to diverse perspectives, and combatting all forms of discrimination.

Religious Studies has a new Facebook  page!  Come check us out and learn about the latest events, news and other happenings in the Department, community and beyond.
