The Department of Religion and Philosophy offers courses and programs in the distinct disciplines of religious studies, theology, and philosophy. All three of these disciplines ask and engage deep questions about the meaning, purpose, and reality of life for individuals and for communities.

The Department affirms that human inquiry regarding basic religious, theological, philosophical, and ethical questions shapes public life. In a similar way, public life shapes the human quest for meaning and identity.  The religion and philosophy programs at Augsburg think historically, respectfully, and critically about these matters. 

The Department groundsprovokesempowersproblematizescollaborates, and nurtures the critical investigation of faith, religion, identity, ethics, vocation, truth (epistemology), and spiritual inquiry. We do this critical work as a community of learners, faculty and students together. 

While much of this work takes place in the context of general education courses, offered to students studying a wide range of disciplines across the university, we also engage these important matters with a vibrant group of students with one of our three majors (Religion, Theology & Public Leadership, and Philosophy) or two minors (Religion and Philosophy). 

This campaign is designed to support and grow our majors and minors by raising funds for gatherings, journal clubs, guest speakers, special events, field trips, resources, scholarships, and more.  

Thank you for your support! 

Meet some of our students!

Watch our slideshow to meet these students - and learn more about why they have decided to major or minor in Religion, Theology & Public Leadership, or Philosophy!
