Spring Evening Weekend Course Schedule - Religion

The Religion Department has thoroughly revised its curriculum, including major changes in the way that courses are numbered. If students have already taken courses in the Religion Department, they should be careful not to repeat the same course under a new number, because you can only earn credit for a course once! The requirements for the Major and the Minor in Religion have also been significantly revised. Students are encouraged to contact the Religion Department for more information.
