When studying religion, you will be challenged to reflect on questions that lie at the foundation of a meaningful life – what is the purpose of human existence? What is the nature of the dying, of sin, of grace? What is the final destiny of the individual? – while studying the answers to those questions by some of the most provocative, profound and influential thinkers in human history. Religion classes at Thiel develop students’ abilities to understand complex issues and assess alternative explanations by engaging profound ideas and great minds from the past and present.
