Department of Religion

Trinity's religion program helps students develop different ways of thinking critically about religion and diverse religious traditions. Through the study of religion, students gain intellectual and academic tools to develop informed, responsible, and creative ways of enriching their own understanding of the world.

The religion department offers courses in a variety of areas, including scripture (Hebrew Bible, New Testament, and Qur’an), Asian religions, Native American religious traditions, Islam, Judaism, Christianity, contemporary religious thought, science and religion, and more. The curriculum provides students with the critical tools, methods, and insights to deal with religious questions, religious claims, and religious aspects of personal and social life in an informed and mature manner.

The department also brings to campus distinguished scholars in the field of religion who deliver public lectures, meet with religion classes, and engage in informal conversation with faculty and students.
