9.37.1 GENERAL INFORMATION

Religious studies consists of a diversity of systematic inquiry into the timeless quest of human beings in the spiritual or transcendental realm as well as their attempts to understand and relate to it. The essential goal of courses in this domain is to offer the student the opportunity to examine critically the realm of the religious in its varied manifestations and to elucidate some of the perennial issues about life and human destiny. The courses are therefore not designed to foster personal religious commitment or to evaluate to that end the relative merits of various religious practices, traditions, and points of view.

Religious studies relate in many ways to all fields of human knowledge. As such, they are of relevance for all students, whether their major/minor fields of study or professional interests lie in fine arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, education, administration, social work, or engineering.
