Academic Advising

Formal academic advising is crucial for all Religious Studies Majors and Minors. If you do not have a faculty member to turn to, please consult the Coordinator of the Program, Tony Burke at

Beyond formal advising, Religious Studies is a "student-friendly" program. All Majors and Minors are encouraged to consult often with faculty members about their current courses, their future courses, and their career opportunities.


Students planning to continue their education in Religious Studies at the graduate level should be aware that many graduate programs require students to have taken a wide range of courses in the field at the undergraduate level and/or to have learned a foreign language. Please become familiar with the prerequisites of any graduate program to which you may choose to apply.
