Religion at East Carolina is studied in a nonsectarian, interdisciplinary fashion, providing students with an understanding of religion as an historical and cultural phenomenon. Our program neither excludes nor promotes any religious tradition or viewpoint. Courses are taught by professors from a variety of backgrounds who bring diverse scholarly interests to the subject.

In addition to the academic programs on campus, the East Carolina Religious Studies Program offers a number of other services and opportunities to the campus and to the eastern North Carolina region.
