Spirituality and the arts

By on June 1, 2004

Does spirituality animate college and university students engaged in the arts and humanities more than their counterparts studying science or business?

Apparently yes, says a new survey conducted by the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA).

It concluded that religious commitment is strongest among students majoring in such fields as fine arts (62 per cent), education (59 per cent) and humanities (57 per cent) and lowest among majors in biological science (43 per cent), history or political science (41 per cent), and sociology (37 per cent).
