THE RELIGIOUS STUDIES MAJOR

The Religious Studies major is 36 hours, in five parts, in a sequence.  Our curriculum is designed along two assumptions:  1)  a Religious Studies major ought to have a general reservoir of knowledge about the academic study of religion, to be obtained by lower-division introductory surveys; and 2) a Religious Studies major should also be introduced to more specialized knowledge, a requirement met by upper-division courses in specific fields or courses in methodology and research methods. 

Requirements for the major are found on the checksheet, and more information may be found in our Undergraduate Advising Handbook.

If you have any questions about majoring or minoring in Religious Studies, please contact our Academic Advisor, Ms. Lee Green-Hall.
