Studying Religion at Emory — What Students and Alumni Say

Check out what students and alumni are saying about Emory’s Religion Department in this new video. They talk about being interested in “big human experiences” and describe a department that helps them question the boundaries set up between disciplines. It’s also a department where “you can tailor your classes and bring them back to other fields,” Leslie Munoz 11C says.

“You can be given such amazing gifts as a religion major,” says Mary Claire Magruder 11C. “The compassion that religion majors have is truly unique.”
