BACHELORS OF ARTS
The Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies gives students a thorough introduction to philosophical and religious thought in the global world with special emphasis on Christian and African American religious thought. Students who complete a degree in Religious Studies will be equipped as leaders with critical reasoning skills, aware of foundational philosophical, theological, biblical, and historical ideas that have shaped contemporary cultures around the world and be prepared to pursue further graduate work in seminary or divinity school and to compete for jobs in areas such as law, public and international policy, civil and human rights organizations churches and other religious organizations, and nonprofit organizations.
A MESSAGE FROM THE DEPARTMENT CHAIR
Religious Studies at Simmons is rooted in the traditions and practices of the Black church, which are brought together with the best broad biblical and theological thought. We focus on issues relevant to the African American context, and we pride ourselves on having professors who are long on starting robust conversations and debates in class, and short on pontificating. Whether you want to grow in ministry or learn more about biblical or theological scholarship, we welcome you to join us at Simmons!
