Fall 2021 PhD Admissions Announcement

The Department of Religion will not be accepting applications for the PhD program during the AY 2020-21 admissions cycle. Within a climate of ongoing cuts to the humanities and social sciences, this is not a decision that we take lightly, and making this announcement now comes with no small measure of sadness. However, given the impact of COVID-19 on academic progress, professional opportunities and more, we have decided to prioritize our current students at this moment.
