Religion begins with a desire to understand the purpose of existence; theologies argue that certain reasons for existence are unique and true. At Loras, majors in Religious Studies and Theology examine religious history and culture as well as Christian theology, scripture and moral reasoning to expand their worldviews and reflect on the complexities of religions and spirituality in the modern world.
 
Students who major or double-major in Religious Studies are some of the most active students at Loras, and are the most likely to study abroad and participate in service trips both nationally and internationally. An additional benefit is that through our experiential education, 98% of all Religious Studies majors find jobs related to their course of study.
