Religious Studies and Philosophy Faculty

About the Department

The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies offers two majors, one in philosophy and the other in religious studies. While the two majors complement and enhance each other, they retain their separate identities and missions. In both programs, Spelman students learn how to read critically, write cogently, identify and interrogate historical and contemporary discourses, apply discipline-specific research methods, conduct and present their own research in their courses, and employ inquiry-based learning so as to take ultimate responsibility for their own academic potential.
