Religious and Theological Studies (B.A.)


Major Requirements


Students majoring in Religious and Theological Studies must take a minimum of 10 Religious and Theological Studies courses (30 credits). Requirements include:

One non-Christian Tradition course:


Three RTS electives (9 credits).


Demonstrated proficiency in Information Literacy


Note:


Students will craft their individual program of study in consultation with the department chair or another advisor from the department. While writing a thesis is not a requirement of the major, the option is available (RTS495  ) to those who are planning to pursue graduate studies or who would otherwise benefit from the experience of undertaking a complex, guided research project

Possible Concentrations


Both majors and minors may, but need not, choose to build their program of study around a particular area by focusing their elective courses in specific ways. The department suggests the following possible concentrations. The student would select four (4) courses from any given area.

Note: At times Special Topics Courses (RTS 399 ) or Independent Study Courses (RTS499 ) may appropriately fall under a particular concentration as well.
