Major in Religion

All majors are encouraged to pursue both depth and breadth by constructing a program of study in consultation with the Director of Undergraduate Studies. The program should include courses in a variety of religious traditions. Students who write a senior thesis may include a term of individually supervised research as one of the courses for their major. 

Students should refer to the Religion Major Checklist for the requirements and policies.

    • 1 gateway course (1000 level)
    • 2 introductory courses (2000 level)
    • 2 intermediate courses (3000 level)
    • 2 seminars (4000 level)
    • 1 additional course at any level
