Religious Studies

Religion Track (Credit Hours: 34)

The Religion Track is the most flexible program in the School of Religion. Students are able to adapt the program to focus primarily on Christian traditions or combine the study of Christianity with the study of other religious traditions such as Judaism, Islam, or Hinduism. 

This program along with courses in English, history, philosophy, the social sciences, and various electives will provide the student excellent preparation for seminary and graduate school or for various careers in faith communities, non-profits, and other community service related organizations.
