Religious Studies Major Requirements

Religious Studies is an exciting, diverse, and flexible major that allows students to tailor the degree to suit their own intersts and furture goals. Many of our students are double majors and they choose courses that will pair well with their second major. Our courses foster critical thinking, cultural understanding, and strong communication skills--attribures that will serve you well in any career.

The Religious Studies major requirements create a balance between several important goals. The major introduces students to 1) the diversity of religious traditions in the world, as well as 2) the many ways of studying religion (theories and methods). At the same time, the major gives students the flexibility to 3) explore in depth any tradition or area of the world that they are intersted in.
