Religion and Philosophy Undergraduate Degrees

The religions and the philosophical systems of the world’s cultures have been powerful, dynamic and enduring forces throughout human history, exercising enormous influence on the formation, development and contemporary expressions of global political, economic, cultural and moral social systems.

A culture’s religion and philosophical thought encapsulates its people’s values and ideas, sets forward their role models and is integrally related to a sense of identity for many. So in studying religions and/or philosophies, one is studying how people reflect on and react to what they consider to be of ultimate significance and value.
