Mission Statement

The Religion faculty takes Muskingum College’s church-related status very seriously.  Muskingum’s express desire, outlined in its mission statement, to educate the “whole person” and to develop students both intellectually and spiritually–with a goal of positive action and ethical sensitivity–reminds us of the Greek tradition of educating body, mind, and spirit and the medieval era when theology was the “queen of the sciences.”

Therefore, our mission to the student body is to help all students grasp and value a religious understanding of life and enable them to articulate the implications of their own belief systems in behavior and decision-making.  Beyond that general mission, we seek for our majors to demonstrate knowledge of the fundamentals in the field of the study of religion, to utilize critical thinking in their study of religion, and to learn to articulate an argument through research and writing.
