Religious studies is a large, interdisciplinary field and the Religion major is designed to be flexible allowing students to meet specific goals while still encouraging breadth and depth in their work. Courses applied to major requirements will be agreed upon in consultation with the department chair and the student’s academic advisor with the design of the major varying to the interests, vocational direction and needs of the student. 

A religion major requires 8 or more courses and must include:

three more courses studying religion which may include additional religious traditions courses, comparative courses and/or a single course from another department
