M.A. Program in Religious Studies

Grad Students

The Master of Arts program in the Department of Religious Studies is designed for students who wish to advance their understanding of a particular area of religious studies or explore multiple traditions and topics beyond the undergraduate level. It can be more or less focused. Many M.A. students choose to later pursue a Ph.D. Many others bring their advanced education to such careers as medicine, nursing, law, diplomacy, ministry, social advocacy, journalism, counseling, and informatics.

It is the expectation that M.A. students will complete their studies in two years.

For additional information on the M.A. program, including requirements, see the M.A. Degree Program Book.

For specific inquiries about the M.A. program, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies: Professor Diana Cates.
