Major Description:

Alderson Broaddus University explores one of the oldest fields of study in academia’s history by combining two disciplines that serve to answer the enduring questions about human existence. The religion and philosophy major examines the core ideas concerning what it means to be a human being while preparing students for future vocations.

Alderson Broaddus University’s religion and philosophy major helps undergraduates develop strong critical thinking skills, strengthens their ability to communicate and work with others, and heightens students’ awareness of diversity and the various viewpoints in our multicultural society.

At Alderson Broaddus, we introduce a broad range of religious and philosophical courses that examine what it means to have a belief in God and seek to understand the spiritual aspect of personhood. While the emphasis is on the Christian religion, students are encouraged to develop a greater depth of knowledge and appropriate skills in our disciplines.
