Philosophy and Religious Studies, B.A.

Graduation Requirements

  1. Writing Portfolio: Beginning in their second year, majors will maintain an online writing portfolio. Students must include writings from the academic year, totaling at least 5,000 words. Portfolios will be assessed for both content and quality.
  2. Entrance and Exit Exams: Majors take an entrance exam to measure their existing knowledge of religious studies. By their senior year, majors take another exam similar in content to measure their progress. Students must score eighty percent or better on their exit exam in order to pass.
  3. Senior Capstone Thesis: As part of either RLST 410, 412, or 398/399, this project is meant to be the culminating experience of the major’s undergraduate career. Two faculty members will assess the thesis, judging mastery and application of content and knowledge.
