A Comprehensive list of Religious Studies courses can be found in the Religious Studies course list page in the Guide.


Please Note: 600 and 601 are offered for majors and certificate students who meet the requirements for authorization. Because religious studies is an interdisciplinary program drawing upon many departments, some courses may have prerequisites in their home departments that must be fulfilled even though the prerequisites themselves have no bearing on progress within the religious studies major. Students are responsible for ensuring that they have met all the prerequisites to enter a course before they enroll in it.
