Department of Religious Studies

The Department of Religious Studies explores the study of God, scripture, and the longing to understand the Divine Mystery across world's wisdom traditions. Questions of healing, meaning, purpose and the good are addressed.

In Marylhurst's religious studies courses, you grow in knowledge of self, others and the Holy – defining images of the Divine, practice of spirituality and commitment to service.

Students pursuing a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies often incorporate religious studies coursework into their academic plan. Those who plan to pursue the MA in Applied Pastoral Theology or Master of Divinity may prepare for these programs by completing the interdisciplinary studies bachelor's degree with a focus in religious studies.

Careers in Religious Studies

An increasing number of institutions are bringing spirituality into the workplace and seeking ethicists, counselors and consultants. As a result, graduates of programs with an emphasis in religious studies enjoy a variety of opportunities in religious education ministry, business, psychology, international law, women studies and domestic violence programs.
