Religion and culture MOU signed by College of Arts and Science, STM

Posted on 2018-05-30 in College Vision

The MOU describes religious studies as "a broad-ranging discipline that engages with a critical aspect of the human experience."

The College of Arts and Science at the University of Saskatchewan and St. Thomas More College celebrated on May 30 the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) related to the undergraduate and graduate religion and culture academic programs.

The MOU confirmed the shift of administrative oversight of the religion and culture programs from the College of Arts and Science to St. Thomas More (STM). However, academic responsibility for the programs, as with all programs involving the College of Arts and Science and STM, will continue to reside with the College of Arts and Science.

The MOU states that “religious studies is a broad-ranging discipline that engages with a critical aspect of the human experience, and as such it has long been a key field of teaching and research activity” in the College of Arts and Science and at STM.

“As parties to this agreement, both colleges commit to ensuring that this long and vital tradition, and the collegial cooperation between them on which it has rested, continues in a way that enables the religion and culture programs and the students and faculty engaged in them to flourish in the years to come.”

The vice-dean academic in the College of Arts and Science will serve as the academic chair of the undergraduate and graduate programs in religion and culture, while the head of the Department of Religion and Culture in STM, or designate, will serve as the program chair for both programs.
