Three Religion/Philosophy Electives


These departmental requirements (48 semester hours), with the University core (48 semester hours) and free electives (24 semester hours), allow students to relate their particular interest to their preparation either for certification for: (1) graduate studies in religious, philosophical, and other professional schools (for example, law, social enterprise, public policy, and social work) or (2) entry-level management in a wide range of religious and human service professions.

To facilitate the unique design of their educational program, each student is assigned a departmental faculty member, who serves as academic advisor.
