BA IN Interfaith Studies

College of Arts and Sciences

Philosophy and Religion Department

On Campus

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. 

Service Opportunities

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).

Student StoriesHannah Trawick '16
"My internship in Bethlehem for the Bright Stars of Bethlehem was one of the most transformational experiences I had at Queens. I edited books and articles for publication and learned about the work of 'creative resistance.' The experience transformed how I view the world and how I live in it."
