Religion Program


Faculty and Staff


Acknowledging both the multidisciplinary and the interdisciplinary requirements for the academic study of religion, those who teach in the Program both employ and rely upon a wide variety of disciplinary approaches in studies of religious phenomena.  Our faculty resources are particularly strong in the areas of Biblical studies, Chinese religions, Christian ethics and theology, Japanese religions, and the philosophy of religion.
