shapes societies, drives politics, lingers in our landscapes, sets our calendar, influences our laws...

Religion students strive to understand human realities, beliefs, and the universal quest for truth, meaning, and moral direction.  We study people of past and present from the perspectives of politics, history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, visual culture, and literary studies—among others. We examine an endless range of religious traditions and practices.

"Religion continues to shape economic and social policies around the world." Journalist, Mike O'Sullivan, USC Religion '81.
