The study of Religion involves exploration of scriptural texts, the wide range of historical and contemporary theological interpretations of those texts and the beliefs and practices that go with them, and the influence and power of religion in societies, cultures, and the lives of individual human beings. At Emory & Henry, our roots rest in Christianity, but our students have ample opportunity to explore other religious traditions as well.
For decades, the E&H Religion Department has prepared its majors, minors, and other students well for seminary and other graduate work in religion—indeed, seminaries know our students will do well in M.Div. or M.T.S. programs. But even if you don’t see yourself heading toward full-time church work or teaching religion, an E&H Religion major or minor could still be right for you.
