Religious Studies Concentration

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

This concentration offers a structured program of study that explores and examines the human religious experience, both in terms of its fundamental ideas as well as pervasive practice. While a number of methods and disciplines common to the liberal arts tradition are employed throughout the various courses offered, focus typically is given to the historical, literary, and cultural dimensions of religious life and thought. This concentration may not be taken conjointly with one of the minors listed below. However, it may be taken conjointly as part of a modified major (24 credits) in philosophy or with a full major in any other department of the College of Arts and Sciences. Students wishing to make religion the focus of an independent major should contact  the program director for further information. A minimum of 28 credits is required for the concentration in religious studies, distributed as follows:

2. Core studies - Two of the following — 8 credits

3. Field related studies - Four courses in at least three of the following five fields — 16 credits
