Huron has launched a brand new program to better serve the needs an interests of our diverse student population. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the difference between religion and theology, here’s a simple comparison:
- Religious Studies tends to look at different religions from around the world, comparing and contrasting them to deal with questions like, “What is religion?” and how do practices, views and literature compare between different belief systems?
- Theology takes more of a deep dive into particular religions, so you can develop a specific and fulsome understanding of what that religion is composed of and how it affects followers
Engage with this program to explore both of these exciting avenues of religious and theological contemplation. You’ll learn to successfully and compassionately navigate complex cultural and social situations, as well as gain a deeper appreciation for the trials and tribulations faced by minority groups who refused to concede to corruption in order to protect their beliefs.
Religious beliefs and practices can have a huge impact on how individuals and groups make social, economic, and political decisions, and it’s important for Leaders with Heart to understand these complex issues to make well-informed, compassionate and effective decisions.
