Degree Requirements

Whether working toward a major or a minor in Religious Studies, all students begin their study with RELS 1010: Introduction to Religious Studies. This course provides an overview of the principal beliefs and practices of the world’s religions, as well as an exploration of their interplay with the cultures in which they exist. From there, students have flexibility in which classes they can take to earn their degree. 

For a convenient summary of the major requirements, consult our “Advising Tips." 

To find a full list of course offerings, consult the catalogue.

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.

If, after consulting this information, you have questions about credits, courses, or requirements, please contact Amanda Adison by phone or email to set up an appointment.
