The major in Religious Studies requires the completion of ten courses beyond the Religious Studies & Theology Cornerstone course.

Complete the Approaches to the Study of Religious Traditions Course

Complete Five Elective Courses

With the advice of a faculty mentor, majors will, within these parameters, select and complete elective courses (typically 5) and a senior thesis topic that accord closely with the major’s specific interests in Religious Studies, such as ancient religions, biblical studies, religion in the modern world, religion and gender, or comparative religious ethics. As appropriate, with the approval of the Chairperson, students may take a course in other departments to fulfill major requirements.

Complete a Senior Capstone Thesis

Normally in the spring semester of their senior year.
