Courses & Transfers
Courses in Religious Studies offer contextualized approaches to religious subject matter. Most of our courses originate in other CLA departments: history, Asian languages & literatures, classical & Near Eastern studies, anthropology, etc. With over 60 courses cross-listed with RELS, students have a wealth of options from which to choose.
Course descriptions in our ClassInfo database provide more in-depth information about courses, expectations, and workload to give you a realistic understanding about what you will experience in each course. Schedule Builder is a tool for students to explore and build their course schedule.

Transferring Religious Studies and Theology Courses
Religious studies and theology courses transfer if they are not doctrinal, confessional, or sectarian in nature. Religious studies courses from public institutions transfer without special review; religious studies courses from all other institutions must be reviewed by faculty of the Religious Studies Program.
To request a review of a course, follow the instructions for Transfer Credit Evaluation.
