The Religion and Philosophy Major
Professors: Martha Beck and Paul Bube
Two-Year Visiting Assistant Professor: John Becker
The religion and philosophy major at Lyon College offers students a broad range of courses rich in philosophical and theological thought. Because it combines rigor and clarity of thought and expression with concern for all aspects of the human condition, the study of religion and philosophy also provides a strong foundation for a range of professions.
All RPH majors will take the advanced seminar. They will either undertake in-depth research and complete a project on a topic in religion or philosophy or connect religious and philosophical insights to other academic disciplines. With the approval of RPH faculty, students in other disciplines may take this course and connect their specialized fields to theological or philosophical perspectives.
Students can choose one of four possible tracks in religion and philosophy.
