Religion Department

Academic Program
Religion classes at Emory & Henry are taught with an emphasis on rigorous intellectual inquiry and mastery of a body of knowledge. While primary emphasis is given to the study of Judeo-Christian history and traditions, you also have the opportunity to pursue comparative religious studies through courses such as Asian Religions, and Judaism and Islam.

One distinctive aspect of classes at Emory & Henry is an emphasis on student participation and personal interaction in the classroom. Classes typically are small, and in virtually every class, there is a great deal of discussion. You also pursue original research, make oral presentations, and write papers. We want you to be an active learner and a person who can express yourself with the written and spoken word.
