The study of religion at the University of Vermont is a crucial part of the wider study of human cultures, global affairs, and personal identities; it is not tied to previous religious training or present religious affiliation. Religious study is the investigation of the myths, rituals, ethical systems, and social formations that human beings have created in response to what they perceive to be powers beyond the human. War and peace, states and revolutions, laws and communities have been shaped by religious aspirations and commitments.
