The intersection of two foundational human activities: faith and reason.
The Religion and Philosophy degree at Tennessee Wesleyan provides students a chance to grapple with what matters most in human existence: “what is real?” - “how can we know?” - “what should I be and do?” - “what does it mean to be human?” - “what is worth believing?” - “and what difference does it make?”
Religion and Philosophy includes seven religion courses, four philosophy courses, and a capstone research paper which affords students the opportunity to formulate a persuasive argument about a figure, idea, movement, or issue, and present their research to department faculty in a colloquy setting.
Classes are purposefully small, giving students and faculty the opportunity to grapple with tough questions together, fostering critical thought among students.
Graduates move on to graduate school, law school, seminary, local church ministry, non-profit, business, or any number of other callings.
