Philosophy and Religious Studies

The Departments of Philosophy and Religious Studies offer a combined major for undergraduates wishing to pursue studies in core areas of both fields. This major ensures a foundational academic study in philosophical concepts and religious studies, and allows for the unique blending of these disciplines as well as of the  creation of distinctive approaches to academic study, such as the philosophy of religion or ritual studies.  

The undergraduate major in Philosophy and Religious Studies consists of 60 units of course work with approximately one third each in the philosophy core, the religious studies core, and either the general major or the special concentration. Affiliated courses cannot be used to satisfy this requirement.
