Grounded in the Catholic tradition, the religious studies program at Clarke University is designed to encourage students to grow in their spirituality, integrate spiritual values into every aspect of their lives and develop a broad understanding and appreciation for a diversity of socio-cultural and religious paths. The program provides a spiritual grounding that helps students make the transition between childhood religion and adult spirituality. Our graduates have gone on to enjoy careers as leaders of youth and campus ministry programs, coordinators and directors of religious education programs, leaders in music ministry and justice advocacy representatives.
Clarke’s religious studies and music departments are now offering an inter-departmental major in music ministry designed to prepare students pursuing careers as school and parish liturgists and pastoral associates. For music ministry course requirements and descriptions, please click here.
