A Major in Religious Studies leading to the B.A. degree requires 30 credit hours in RELS courses. At least five (5) courses, including RELS 4600, must be at the 3000-level or above.
Two 3-credit hour courses that are cross-listed with Religious Studies courses but taught in another department or program (e.g., History, Anthropology, Africana Studies, Women and Gender Studies, etc.) may count toward the Major in Religious Studies. These courses may have the designation of the cross-listed department. For these courses to be counted toward the Religious Studies major, students must request from their advisor a “Request for Cross-Listed Courses in Another Department to Count Toward The Major in Religious Studies” form and submit it to their advisor who will include it in their advising file. The form must be submitted no later than October 1 for graduation in December; March 1 for graduation in May; and June 1 for graduation in summer.
Additionally, one LBST course that is also a General Education course taught by a Religious Studies instructor may also count toward the Major in Religious Studies. Included are: LBST 2101 , LBST 2102 , LBST 2211 , LBST 2212 , LBST 2213 , LBST 2214 , LBST 2215 , and LBST 2301 .
