The move to secular humanism may soon be complete....

A faculty panel recommends that Harvard drop their religion requirement and add a requirement on "what it means to be a human being."

"Courses dealing with religion ...can readily be accommodated in other areas," the nine-member panel wrote to members of the faculty of arts and sciences.

To satisfy the newly suggested requirement, students could take courses in such areas as evolutionary biology, cognitive sciences, social sciences, religious thought, art, literature or philosophy.
