Heartland Community College

Religious Studies Information

  • Foster the skills, attitudes and values that promote a sense of inquiry, reflective learning and responsible thinking. Explore the ways religious beliefs and practices affect human life. Your journey will also include the exploration of the relationship between religion and science.

  • Courses offered include Major World Religions, Literature of the Bible and Religion in American Society. Students of religion learn valuable lessons by discussing concepts from a world view perspective and addressing the serious global conflicts caused by lack of knowledge about other belief systems.

  • While some who study religion go on to become members of the clergy, studying religion can lead to several other intriguing careers, including:

    • Counseling/Advising
    • Government/Social Services
    • Healthcare/Medicine
    • Journalism
    • Law
    • Missionary Work
    • Teaching/Consulting
  • Earn your Heartland degree and transfer to a four-year college or university:

    Associate in Arts - Concentration in Religion

    If you plan to complete the first two years of study at Heartland and then continue your studies as a religion major at a four-year institution in Illinois, the Associate in Arts (AA) transfer preparation program is the path for you.
