Welcome to the School of Religion
Religion plays a major role in shaping and influencing various cultures and historical and political movements around the world. Thus, understanding religious traditions and their impact on diverse modern issues is vital preparation for building a career in the global marketplace.
Religious Studies involves examining the history of religious traditions, comparing the ideas and values of different religious systems, and understanding the place and function of religion in society. Students of Religion investigate why people are religious, where religion comes from, and how it should be defined and understood.
Religious Studies gives students opportunities to interact with many different local, regional and global issues.
Queen's University is situated on traditional Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe territory.
On 3 November, 2015, the Senate of Queen's University voted to close the Theology programs in the School of Religion. These programs are no longer offered by the School of Religion.
