Why choose Religion at Saint Leo?

Religion helps us better understand ourselves, our relationships and what motivates cultures around the world. As a Religion scholar, you'll develop a more holistic view of the human experience—a perspective that will inform your work whether serving the church, classroom, courtroom or a social service organization.

What better place to study religion than at Florida’s oldest Catholic college? With centuries-old roots in the Benedictine tradition, we welcome all curious thinkers, regardless of faith background. Together with University Ministry and the brothers and sisters at Saint Leo Abbey, our faculty guide students toward career goals, and to a higher mind-body-spirit connection through respect, service and joy.
