Philosophy & Religious Studies
Philosophy and Religious Studies serves as the intellectual cornerstone of Marywood’s Mission and Core Values. Each discipline approaches life’s ultimate questions using its own disciplinary methods and sources. The department is dedicated to fostering thoughtful, reflective, and just habits of mind in students. Both areas of study offer introductory courses and diverse arrays of elective options that support the Core Requirements for all Marywood Bachelor’s degrees. In addition, students can pursue the BA in Religious Studies or the BA in Philosophy. Additional programs and minors are described below.
