Religious Studies Student Experience

Baker religious studies students have a multitude of opportunities for involvement in and out of the classroom. Small class sizes allow maximum interaction with classmates and professors. They also have access to activities and resources beyond the classroom.


Students undertake research in areas such as ethical issues and world religions. Baker has an affiliation with the Pluralism Project at Harvard University that allows students to create profiles of area religious centers. These are posted in Harvard’s Internet database of U.S. religious centers.

Firsthand Learning

Religious studies courses occasionally involve conversations with guest speakers of different faiths and field trips to worship services of different faiths. This interaction with people of different religions is educational.
