Religious Studies Graduate Program

Areas of Concentration

In addition to developing a general competence in the larger field of religious studies, its approaches, and its methods, students pursuing the M.A. demonstrate depth of knowledge in one particular area by crafting their programs of study around an area of concentration. Areas of concentration are designed and articulated by the student to best reflect their own areas of interest, and can be either geographic/historical or theoretical/methodological in nature. Examples include:

  • Indigenous religions
  • Islam
  • Judaism
  • Religion in the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean
  • Religion in Asia
  • Religion in the U.S.A.
  • Religious ethics
  • Performance and ritual
