Religious and Ethical Studies
Meredith College offers an innovative and versatile major in Religious and Ethical Studies, a minor in Religion and an interdisciplinary minor in Ethics and the Public Interest.
The study of religion and ethics prepares students to live in our ever-changing world where multiple religious and ethical commitments both inform and challenge our understandings of how people inhabit, experience, and ultimately shape the world we all share.
Majoring in Religious and Ethical Studies enables students to take a leadership role in addressing the complex cultural and ethical issues in their future professions. Many students even choose to adopt Religious and Ethical Studies as a second major, as a way of gaining cultural and ethical competence in their primary field of study.
Our innovative programs in religion and ethics prepare you for a variety of careers and graduate programs. The critical thinking and writing skills you will develop by exploring the complex and diverse world around us can be your entrance to leadership roles in ministry, law, education, counseling, business, public policy and international studies.
