The minor in religious studies is available to master’s (M.A. and M.S.) and doctoral students in relevant fields such as history, classics, English, anthropology, philosophy, American studies, and so forth, and is under the general direction of members of the graduate faculty who represent a broad spectrum of disciplines.
Admission is contingent on prior admission to a master’s or doctoral degree-granting program with the Graduate School.
Students should consult with the Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) in Religious Studies as early as possible, but, in any case, no later than their third semester of study. The DGS in Religious Studies must approve the applicant’s proposed course of study and sign the student’s degree program form.
Inclusion of 4xxx courses on degree program forms is subject to approval by the DGS.
There is no language requirement beyond that of the student’s graduate major.
