Important resources include a large library with a generous collection of periodical literature, the Religion of Newfoundland and Labrador Archives, courses in ancient and non-western languages, strong computer support, and ten highly qualified, full-time faculty members.

The Department is also the home of the Journal of Macrodynamic Analysis.
Faculty and graduate student research has been conducted on the following: Hinduism, philosophy of religion, Hebrew bible, new-age and pagan religious movements, Chinese and North American Buddhism, Buddhism and Psychology, Christianity, religion and popular culture, ethics and social justice, new testament, religious history of Newfoundland and Labrador, Islam in the West.
