Humanities & Religious Studies
A Hidden Gem on Campus!

The Department of Humanities and Religious Studies is an unusual department that combines the study of Humanities and of Religion. We like to think of ourselves at looking at the big picture, studying what it has meant to be alive in different cultures, from the ancient world to the contemporary. The most insightful and compelling answers are found in literature, the visual arts, music, drama, religions, philosophy, and the writing and interpretation of history.

 

Our students and graduates pursue careers in education, library science, journalism, media and communication, counseling, health professions, the clergy, business, and law enforcement.

 

Donations made to the HRS department will contribute to student success opportunities that provide resources such as Funding for travel, new literature and books, and assistance with graduate school application fees. We are always looking to do more for our students!

 

“My CSUS HRS degree helped me develop a framework to engage people and culture at a comprehensive level. Religion and more broad social philosophies inform how economies, media, and legal systems develop in any given region, and being aware of and educated in these deep-seated values allows me to interact and cooperate in a more effective and empathetic fashion. A degree in Religious Studies has made it possible for me to approach controversial work in the most objective and humble manner possible, while informing my own personal philosophies. My education has been invaluable in my experience with small business, non-profit, corporate, and graduate work. Go Hornets!" - Keir Wilkinson
