New Home Departments for Philosophy & Religion Majors
- Monday, February 1st, 2021
Effective July 1, 2021, the Department of Philosophy & Religion will dissolve as an administrative unit. It will split into two, with faculty and programs in Religious Studies and Asian Religions and Cultures moving into the History Department, while faculty and programs in Philosophy will move into the Political Science Department.
All existing majors and minors will continue in their new homes, and the faculty will remain based in Cherry Hall. We anticipate that there will be increased opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and curricular innovation that will benefit our students in those majors and support our faculty.
