Religion Department

Dr. Michael Mason, Chair

Program Description

The Department of Religion offers a Bachelor of Arts in Religion, a Bachelor of Arts in Religion - Christian Thought Emphasis, and a Bachelor of Arts in Religion - Comparative Religion Emphasis. The department offers minors in religion and philosophy of religion.

Through this department, Lindenwood students have the opportunity to study religion from a nonsectarian, academic point of view. The goal of the study of religion is not to promote or undermine religion or any particular religious tradition; an academic approach to religion aims to understand critically the power, prevalence, and relevance of religion in many cultures and aspects of life. The religion program may be used as a basis for graduate work in academic study and research, as preparation for religious training, or as background and support for other business and professional careers.
