Prior to graduating, seniors explore religion as a phenomenon common to humanity and develop tools for the study of any religious tradition. They learn language and method for theological thinking with particular emphasis on the religions birthed of the Abrahamic tradition. Through seminars, essay writing, and research projects, students reflect on the theoretical material presented. At the conclusion of the course, each student articulates a personal creedal statement in light of a full year's experience examining the phenomenon of religion.
In addition to Introduction to Religious Studies, SAS offers elective opportunities for Bible study, and baptism and confirmation preparation..
