Religious Studies Major Requirements

The Religious Studies major introduces students to the diversity of religious traditions in the world, as well as the many ways of studying religion (theories and methods). At the same time, the major gives students the flexibility to explore in depth any tradition or area of the world that they are intersted in.

Incoming students

In addition to Utah State University’s admissions requirements, the Religious Studies program has additional requirements:

  • New freshmen admitted to USU in good standing qualify for admission to this major.
  • Transfer students from other institutions or students transferring from other USU majors need a 2.5 total GPA for admission to this major.
  • International students have additional admissions requirements.
