Department of Religious Studies at Loyola University New Orleans

Welcome to the Department of Religious Studies

The Department of Religious Studies at Loyola University New Orleans, rooted in the Catholic and Jesuit context of education, encourages the academic study of religion in a spirit of free intellectual inquiry. As the 34th congregation of the Society of Jesus states: “To be religious today is to be interreligious.” And so from the very beginning, students are invited to consider their faith in a global context, to deepen their appreciation of themselves in a religious world, and to offer the results of their revelations for the benefit of all.
