Major Requirements

A major in philosophy and religion consists of ten courses, eleven if seeking honors. Five of these must be in philosophy, and five must be in religion. At least five courses should be focused upon a particular area of interest, which a student enters into with a plan to follow through in an integrated manner. This approach is intended to give students several options while also giving them direction, so that the joint major brings disciplinary integrity to interdisciplinary study.

No more than three of these courses may be at the 100 or 200 level.

Only one of the ten courses may be an independent study, or two if seeking honors.

The major program consists of the following requirements:

Theory and Methods in the Study of Religion

Philosophy and Religion Electives (seven)

  • Two electives at any level in either philosophy or religion
  • Five Upper Level courses at the 300- or 400-level in either philosophy or religion

400-level Philosophy or Religion Seminar

  • At least one 400-level seminar in either philosophy or religion, considered a capstone of the major.
