Mission and Goals

Alumni HallGoals

The goals include the development of an understanding of the Judeo/Christian tradition in the spirit of the Catholic and Vincentian heritage of the University.  This is accomplished through the exploration of unity and diversity in the dialogue between Christianity and the World Religions by study of sacred texts, beliefs, symbols, rituals and communities. The program also explores how religion entails an ethical response to the personal, social, cultural and political problems of our time.


The Religious Studies Program at Niagara is designed to assist students to understand the religious dimension of human life as it influences persons, cultures and the world.
