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.
Religion and philosophy play a central role in a good liberal arts education, providing students the occasion to raise questions and reflect upon the fundamental elements of daily experience. In keeping with our Christian heritage of reasoned faith, the religion and philosophy major encourages students to understand positions different from their own, evaluate them critically, express their understanding clearly and cogently, and formulate their own point of view thoughtfully.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
