Religious Studies students create UNO Ravel/ Unravel
Religious Studies students at UNO created a campaign with Ravel/ Unravel, a portrait of religious diversity at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Ravel/ Unravel is a multimedia exploration of the tapestry of spiritual and religious identities that make up our communities hosted by Project Interfaith. The project hopes to ignite a movement for people to openly and respectfully learn, talk and share about topics which are typically taboo but often define our interactions and experiences as humans: identity, religion, spirituality and culture. Please explore this website, watch video interviews and upload your own, comment on and share your favorite videos via social media, and utilize discussion guides and educational resources. http://ravelunravel.com/campaign/uno-ravelunravel

Welcome from the Chair
Welcome to the Religious Studies Program at UNO! Religion is a force in literature, art, music, politics, ethics, societal development, and economics. Through the centuries, religion has inspired progress in the battle for human rights, social justice, tolerance, and peace as well as genocide and war. An understanding of the role of religion world-wide is critical to a liberal arts education and a responsible citizenry.
