Major and Minor
The Religious Studies Major and Minor at Davidson
A religious studies major allows you the latitude to pursue multiple and different interests, and a religious studies minor can serve as a compelling and effective complement to your major course of study.
A major in Religious Studies provides a broad background in different traditions, both Western and Eastern, and in different methods, including historical, literary, sociological, and anthropological among others. This field of study encourages students to become critical and sympathetic interpreters of the beliefs and practices of other cultures as well as their own.
The religious studies minor offers students the opportunity to supplement or enhance their chosen major with a variety of religion courses. A minor allows for exposure to a spectrum of traditions and critical methods without the curricular demands required of the major.
Students interested in becoming a candidate for honors in theatre, must apply in writing to the department by May 1 of junior year. Please see additional information about the theatre honors requirements in the College Catalog.
