Religious studies has emerged as one of the most significant interdisciplinary programs on campus. It includes faculty from more than twenty departments and offers dozens of courses covering all of the world's major and many of its minor religious traditions. Chronologically, the program's offerings range from ancient to modern times; geographically, they span the globe; and methodologically, they range across the humanities and social studies, with special attention to the theories and methods which have developed in the field of religious studies itself. The program does not offer a graduate degree, but the religious studies program does award a minor to students enrolled for the Ph.D. in other departments. In exceptional circumstances, students admitted to a doctoral degree-granting department may be granted permission to pursue a special committee doctorate in religious studies; for information on such degrees, contact the Graduate School.
