Religious Studies explore a wide variety of religious beliefs and practices. Religious studies discuss ultimate values and their relationship to our ways of life by examining myth, ritual, ethical behavior, emotional response, and symbolic expression.  Students learn the meaning of religion in human experience and social life through various disciplines: history, sociology, psychology, anthropology, cross-cultural studies, and philosophy.  Students are encouraged to think critically about values and meanings that have been expressed through various religions and to relate those values to the contemporary world. Lorain County Community College has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by Lorain County Community College’s University Partnership.
