Religion has been and continues to be a major factor in the development of cultures and institutions, and is significant to individuals as they examine ultimate questions and how they should live.

The Department of Religious & Classical Studies exposes students to various belief systems, texts, and languages in both modern and ancient contexts.

  • Some courses focus on the role of religion in human history, experience, thought, and action.
  • Others focus on the cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome, and their lasting effects on the modern world.

Many of our students double major, combine majors and minors, or even combine degrees across different schools at Pacific. We encourage such academic pursuits, and believe that the ability to intellectually draw from different disciplines strengthens discussions during classes.
