Saint Michael's Religious Studies

The religious studies program at Saint Michael's serves as excellent preparation for graduate studies and any number of career choices built on a solid liberal arts foundation.

In keeping with the mission of Saint Michael's as a Catholic liberal arts college, we approach religious studies by examining the foundations, development, meaning, and cultural relevance of the Christian tradition. We also encourage you to explore other religious traditions, such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism.

Ultimately, these studies contribute to our graduates' understanding of humanity and of themselves, and help to develop the skills of critical thinking and analysis that are essential to successful careers, further study, and lives of service.
