Religion

A Look at Eternity, Happiness, and Human Purpose

At Hillsdale, the study of religion isn’t built around the teachings of a particular faith, as it might be at a denominationally affiliated school. Nor is it dispassionate and oriented to skeptical criticism, as you might find at a more secular institution. Our courses invite you to think theologically—probing great questions within and in light of fundamental principles and tools of faith—religious texts, practices, and convictions. In doing so, you gain a deeper understanding of the animating forces of Western culture. Religion is offered as both a major and minor.
