Philosophy and religious studies are essential parts of the training each student requires—training not necessarily for a specific job but for life.
Hood's philosophy program provides students with a broad foundation in the philosophical classics and a good basic grounding in the discipline.
Religious studies fulfills the central theme of the Hood College mission: that students come to see their own individual stories within the framework of a larger world of meaning.
The department offers two majors: religion and philosophy. The department also offers minors in religion and philosophy. Four minors are co-sponsored by the department:
- Middle Eastern Studies
- Classical Studies
- Medieval Studies
- Renaissance Studies
