The goal of our programs isn't to make you into a priest or nun. Rather, it is to let you study different expressions of religion throughout history, as well as in contemporary society. The study of religion is essential to understand our world. Our multidisciplinary programs combine history, sociology, psychology and anthropology. The result is a rich mix of perspectives on an array of topics: world religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism), mysticism, Amerindian religions, mythology of First Nations in Canada, religions in colonial America, witchcraft and magic, ecology and religion, sexuality, contemporary spiritual movements, globalization and multiculturalism.
This program is offered in English and in French.
The table below includes only discipline-specific courses. Please refer to the Academic Regulations for information on including a minor to your degree.
