The faculty of the Religion Department are actively involved in religious studies research. They attend professional conferences to present their research, and they are often called to speak at universities across the globe.

The department also hosts exciting workshops, in which members of the field of religious studies are brought together to collaborate with each other and to stimulate the critical thinking of Williams students.

Students in the Department of Religion take advantage of many opportunities provided by Williams (such as travel fellowships) to pursue their research interests in the field, especially abroad.
