The Religious Studies major offers students a great deal of flexibility, with the option of focusing on particular religious traditions through electives in a range of global traditions and disciplinary perspectives. The advising forms and resources on this page will provide religious studies majors with tools for designing a course of study.
See the Informational Handout for a brief description of the major/minor requirements.
Individualized Plan of Study
The study plan provides an outline in which each student will select courses from the Global Perspectives, Disciplinary Approaches, and Electives categories. Each category is comprised of courses from across the disciplines.
At times, our majors may decide to specialize their studies with a faculty member in a particular area through an Independent Study or Independent Readings course. These are individually designed and must have the approval of the department chair. See Independent Study Form to access the contract form you will need to fill out for this option in your studies.
