Religion and the University

Religion and the University – a one day seminar exploring religious studies in the university.

The discussion will include:

The importance of various aspects of religion in academic scholarship, particularly secular studies, such as medicine and law

How Australian universities engage an increasingly multicultural student body, and the need to be increasingly sensitive toward religion

The valuable social services faith-based institutions offer in Australia

  • The historical perspective — Religion in the secular university
  • Religious studies at the University of Melbourne and neighbouring tertiary institutions
  • Case studies — how is religion incorporated explicitly and implicitly in teaching, research and pastoral care?
  • Where to from here?
