The Department of Religious Studies made a global curriculum change effective 2014-15, reconfiguring the course structure to more directly reflect a progression of accomplishment to guide Religious Studies majors from introductory to intermediate and advanced courses. The current BA requirements are:
One Prerequisite course
Two courses at 200 introductory level
Three courses at 300 intermediate level
Two courses at 400 level or above
One Capstone course (RELG 488 offered each spring)
The faculty are working on increasing the number of available courses for students at both the 200 and 400 levels to provide adequate course offerings for students to easily achieve the requirements for their degree. This course number and description change are part of this overall plan to move some current courses into the 400 level.
