The required course for all Religious Studies majors is Theory and Method in the Study of Religion (RELG 391). Usually taken in the junior year, this course surveys the dominant methods of studying religion and the theories on which they are based. It is the foundation from which students can start to build their own research projects, if they so choose.
Students who want to really dig into a topic may do an Independent Studies project with a professor of their choice, or complete an Honors project.
Some professors are involved in research that can use student assistance. Ask.
The College provides funding for student research.
