Bringing understanding and compassion to humanity and yourself
What is your purpose in life? Why do we suffer? Is there a spiritual dimension to the universe? Why do bad things happen to good people? What is truth? How can I be a force of goodness in the world? If questions like these burn inside you, come answer them at Susquehanna University.
Explore life’s big questions in small classes with professors who love engaging in spirited conversations. Benefit from popular courses such as Being Awesome at Life, which examines the definition of a good life across cultures throughout history. Discover the surprising overlaps of agreement among scientific and religious claims. Study how world religions relate to fields like ethics, archaeology, philosophy and environmental studies. Study abroad through our Global Opportunities program and get a firsthand look at religious practice of the world in Europe, Asia, Africa or South America. Delve into your own faith tradition or view of the world while deepening your understanding of other traditions. Think more critically, analyze texts more clearly and become ever more compassionate toward others and yourself.
Become part of Susquehanna University’s proud history of preparing religious studies students for many varied professional careers, such as social work or government. Religion touches nearly every aspect of human life, literature, politics, current events, history, art and our personal lives. Understanding it means understanding how people think and feel about what really matters, and what motivates how they act. Whether you prepare for a career in ministry or the religious sphere, or another field meaningful to you and your values, you will know how to think, speak, and write with clarity, handle conflicts gracefully and encourage compassionate conversation wherever life takes you.
