Welcome to the Department of Religious Studies

Exploring the world’s religions from a variety of perspectives, including their intersection with politics, economics, and social development, Religious Studies at St. Jerome’s University extends far beyond campus. Through our Beyond Borders Program students receive university credit for working with marginalized populations in countries such as Ecuador, Ukraine, Belize, Brazil, and the Honduras, to name but a few.


Our professors are particularly interested in how religion participates in modern questions regarding politics and social justice, peace-making and international relations, the ecological crisis, social values, sexual ethics, theology, and popular culture.


Classes are open to students of any denomination or belief system; professors specialize in contemporary Christianity and Roman Catholicism, but also teach Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Islam, and other faiths.
