Religious Studies Major

If you love learning about religions, you can major in religious studies by pursuing the University studies degree with a concentration in, “Religious Thought, Practices and Culture.” The University Studies Bachelor of Arts allows you to focus on religious studies as your primary field and combine it with two other fields.  Majors in Religious Thought, Practices and Cultures take 21 credit hours (7 courses) in religious studies (RELS), plus two 15 credit minors, one of which is not in the College of Liberal Arts.
