The study of religion at Bucknell explores the experiences, narratives, and social expressions of individuals and groups as they strive to articulate meaningful lives. As an academic study, religion focuses on institutional formations associated with both world religions and local religious traditions, as well as social, cultural, and political developments that call forth ultimate commitment from participants.
The academic study of religion contributes to the formation of global citizens by giving them fundamental capacities of intercultural literacy. The skills and capabilities that students develop in the academic study of religion are therefore broadly applicable and are intimately related to the goals of other areas of study at Bucknell, not only in the humanities but also in management, the sciences, and engineering.
