The Department of Religion is Seton Hall’s home for comparative religion, comparative theology, inter-religious dialogue, and ecumenical studies.
We offer a comprehensive yet focused Bachelor of Arts program, as well as minors in religion and archeology, to undergraduate students. This curriculum focuses on the theological, ethical, and cultural dimensions of Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant Christianity and other religious traditions, particularly the Jewish and Muslim traditions.
On the graduate level, we offer a Master of Arts in Jewish-Christian Studies, the first and only one of its kind in the United States. This program focuses on analyzing complex religious, ethical and social issues that promote peace and justice and prepares students for many facets of interreligious and multicultural relations, dialogue and diplomatic encounters.
