BA IN Interfaith Studies
Philosophy and Religion Department
Examine the history, texts and practices of a variety of world religions.
As an interfaith studies major, you'll emerge from Queens equipped to approach world problems with knowledge, experiential learning, understanding, critical-thinking skills and appreciation for our diverse world. You’ll learn to ask the hard questions, examine belief systems and reflect on personal meaning in a setting marked by academic growth and active encouragement.
Ninety percent of Queens students will engage in service during their college years. Our department is closely linked to many service opportunities through partnerships with organizations like Room in the Inn (support for the homeless), Sedgefield Elementary School and The Grove (an afterschool children’s program).
