Description of Undergraduate Major: 

The University of Denver's undergraduate religious studies program offers students the opportunity to study religion in ways not found at other universities. The BA provides students breadth and depth, balancing textual and theoretical study with a focus on lived traditions through site visits and experiential learning.

Students pursuing a BA in religious studies learn about many of the major religious traditions of the world and investigate how theories of religion can help interpret the religious phenomena that surround us. They focus on lived experience through observation of local religious communities, engage with local communities through service learning and prepare for a wide variety of careers through the development of excellent writing skills.
