Connect with
Huron Students

We know how great Huron is, and we are proud to tell you about the distinct advantages that differentiate our university from all others. However, we don’t expect you to take our word for it. Instead, we want to connect you directly with a current student or staff member, so they can give you an unbiased review about life, learning and development at Huron.

Why on Earth Should I Study Religion(s)?

Studying religions helps you understand people.

Whether in our pluralistic context here in Canada, or in diverse societies around the world, religion deeply shapes people’s hopes, anxieties, and values. Understanding what it is and how it works is crucial for 21st century leadership in any professional field.
