Double Major

Many students pursue Religious Studies as a double major. A deeper familiarity with multiple religious traditions and with the ways that religion shapes individuals, societies, and cultures can add an important dimension to studies in history, art history, anthropology, sociology, psychology, or international studies. In our religiously diverse world, a double major in Religious Studies also usefully expands the knowledge and skills of students preparing for careers in law, business, or human services.
