Religious studies students examine the dynamic relationship between religion and other social, economic, and political institutions to develop a critical understanding of religious traditions, issues, questions, and values. Philosophy students become precise readers, writers, and speakers who are able to accurately and creatively understand big questions concerning right and wrong, justice, freedom, beauty, knowledge, and truth.

With the support and encouragement of our outstanding faculty, you will apply your newfound classroom knowledge in lively positive discussions as a member of one our student organizations. By the time you leave, you will be highly prepared for professional work and advanced study in education, law, public service, journalism, government, writing and religion.

As you consider Ball State and the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, we encourage you and your family to schedule a visit for a campus tour, information sessions, and opportunities to interact with faculty and current students.
