 "A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindn​​ess gathers love." -St. Basil the Great


As an intellectual investigation into an important dimension of human experience, the examination of religion and philosophy is intrinsically valuable. It creates a fundamental resource for reflection on the meaning of life and interpersonal development. It also contributes to preparing students for a wide range of careers, such as law, medicine, social work, teaching, local to international politics, and leadership within religious organizations.


The study of religion and theology is distinguished by the uniqueness of its subject matter and the diversity of its methods. Its subject matter is global: the scriptures, institutions, teachings, rituals, devotions and moral injunctions of all the world’s religious traditions. Furthermore, it addresses this subject matter with the full range of investigative tools made available by the various disciplines utilizing historical, scientific and philosophical methods. As such, religious studies are inherently both cross-cultural and interdisciplinary.  St. Basil the Great College is proud to provide the best that religious and philosophical inquiry has to offer.
