How should we live? Where are we going? How do we know what is good? Where did we come from? Is this all there is? Who are we? What’s it all about? These questions have preoccupied some of the world’s greatest thinkers across cultures and through time.
The Society, Culture & Religion undergraduate program offers the opportunity to explore these kinds of ‘big questions’ in a program tailored to students’ individual interests. Our programs are designed to inspire and train our students to become critical thinkers, engaged citizens, and effective communicators.
