Department of Religion Studies - University of Johannesburg

The UJ Department of Religion Studies focuses on diverse religions including Christianity, Islam, Judaism, African and Eastern religions.  All of these faith traditions have for millennia, in their own unique way articulated the human search for meaning and continue to do so. In order to fully appreciate the rich diversity of people’s religious expressions and to find out what the sense of such expressions is for our contemporary societies, we at UJ embrace the study of religion through scientific approaches and in an unbiased manner.
