A religious phenomenon will only be recognized as such if it is grasped at its own level, that is to say, if it is studied as something religious. To try to grasp the essence of such phenomenon by means of physiology, psychology, sociology, economics, linguistics, art or any other study is false; it misses the one unique and irreducible element in it, the element of the sacred . --- Mircea Eliade

Welcome to the University of Tampa Library's guide to World Religions and ethical thought. The purpose of this guide is to help you successfully locate high-quality information for your research project in world religions and ethics.

Courses in Religion at the University of Tampa

Courses in religion are offered through the Department of Philosophy and Religion. A major or minor in religion is not offered at the University of Tampa. However, given the interdisciplinary nature of scholarship today, and the need to critically evaluate topics from as many diverse perspectives as possible, religion and ethics are historically and culturally deep waters from which to draw, which can add competing arguments and viewpoints to any well-researched paper.
