Why Religious Studies?

Religious studies is a highly relevant field in today's complex, globalizing world. We're here to help you make sense of the many ways that religion and politics, economics, culture, and society intersect - in the United States and around the world!

The Religious Studies program at the University of Denver invites students to explore religion and religious traditions from around the world, with programs at the undergraduate and graduate level. Our world-class faculty and small class sizes make for a personalized learning opportunity with strong faculty mentoring.

Our B.A. and M.A. programs help students bring cultural and cross-cultural analytical tools to careers in business, human resources, social work, government, non-profits, and journalism. They also help students qualify for excellent doctoral programs, and along with our Joint Ph.D. program help students qualify to teach religious studies courses in colleges and high schools. Our course offerings and faculty expertise reflect our commitment to providing a balance of various traditions, methods, and theoretical approaches.
