The Study of Religion at Whitman College
The goal of the study of religion at a secular college is religious literacy. Religious literacy, an important dimension of cultural literacy, entails both a cognitive component (knowledge of religions and of the religious dimension of culture) and proficiencies (the acquiring of skills relevant to the analysis of religion). Courses in religion have the objective of conveying knowledge in four areas (Asian Religions, Modern Western Religious Thought, Near Eastern Religions, and Religion in America), and of developing skills of analysis, interpretation, and communication.
