- Student Life
The Department of Religion provides students with a framework for the systematic study of Christian history, theological and ethical development, and contemporary expression in society. With this focus--and study in Eastern and Native American religions and Judaism--students prepare for careers as social workers, church administrators, rabbis, counselors, professors, and priests.
RELIGION & CULTURE
Students have access to the research facilities of the Center for Jewish Studies (a privately endowed institution located at Lehigh University) and to the outstanding library collection of the Moravian Theological Seminary (located in the College’s Reeves Library). Consortium courses in religion are regularly taught on Moravian’s campus by the faculty of the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges. Cross-registration for courses on other campuses is also possible.
Students may take courses at Moravian Theological Seminary. The department has offered study tours to Koinonia Farm and other religious communities in the United States and to England, Israel, and Mexico. Religion students are active in the Campus Chapel Program and the Religious Life Council (a College committee).
