College of Arts and Sciences

The major in theology and religious studies consists of a minimum of 24 upper-division semester hours in addition to completing TH 1000  (or TH 1050 ). TH 3000  (or TH 3050 ) counts toward the 24 upper-division hours. These 24 semester hours, together with 12 additional semester hours of related upper-division courses, are subject to the approval of the major advisor. A senior exit activity/interview is required. Also required are two semesters of college-level study of one language other than English. This requirement may be fulfilled by completing two semesters of college-level literature in one language other than English. In either case, the language courses must be taken for college-level credit. [Neither College Level Examination Program (CLEP) nor Advanced Placement (AP) exams fulfill this requirement.] A grade of C or better is required in each upper-division course of the major. (A grade of C- will not satisfy the requirement.)

Majors are urged to take more than the minimum of 24 hours of upper-division work. The 12 hours of related course work are to be chosen with the guidance of the major advisor. These 12 hours of related course work must pertain directly to the major concentration. Selected courses in history, philosophy, or other disciplines approved by the major advisor, constitute related course work. In the normal course, for both majors and non-majors, TH 1000  or TH 1050  ought to be followed by TH 3000  or TH 3050 .

Students have the option of taking an additional “swing course” to meet the core requirement. The department prefers that the hours contained in the liberal core be fulfilled in different semesters: the required core courses should not be taken simultaneously.
