Religion is a pervasive, powerful, multifaceted, and enduring dimension of human experience. Religions have shaped complex cultures and countless individual lives. They are influential in the world today and will continue to be so in the future. The academic study of religion is multidisciplinary, drawing upon approaches from history, literary studies, philosophy, and the social sciences. It is multicultural, exploring the beliefs, practices, and development of particular religious communities in many different cultures.
Requirements for the Major
*Restricted to Religion majors only and minors with permission of instructor. Students must have completed at least five courses in the major prior to taking the capstone. It will be offered only in the SPRING semester, so students should plan accordingly.
All Temple students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses. The specific writing-intensive courses required for this major are listed above and are identified by "WI" in the RCI column.
Transfer students: No more than five religion courses taken at other institutions may be accepted for the major. The director of undergraduate studies must determine that these meet the standards of the Religion major.
A minor in Religion has the same objectives and offers the same kinds of opportunities for learning as the major, in a program designed for students concentrating in another academic field. It consists of:
Distinction in Major in Religion
For graduation with Distinction in Major, an overall GPA of 3.25 is required with 3.5 in Religion courses.
