Religion Department

College of Arts & Sciences

The study of religion at Cal Lutheran invites students into the world’s oldest, newest, strangest, and most urgent questions of human meaning, in relation to the staggering breadth of the universe, the world’s beauty and pain, the most intimate depths of the soul. Here you can explore the university’s Lutheran approach to higher education, encounter spiritual and cultural traditions from around the world, ponder the ethical questions that will shape your life’s path, study texts and traditions—and question everything. And along the way we hope you’ll find some answers about what you care about, who you are, and where you are going.
