This program explores the reasons and rationalities embedded in a variety of religious traditions and the religious dimensions embedded in a variety of philosophical traditions. Graduate students in the philosophy of religion program are expected to become conversant with the methods of religious studies (including the history and phenomenology of religion), with traditional areas of philosophical study (metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and the history of ideas), and with the texts and normative discourses of the particular religious traditions relevant to their area of interest. Graduate students in the Division of Religious and Theological Studies (DRTS) have access to the faculties of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), the Boston University School of Theology, and, through the Boston Theological Institute, other universities in the Boston area.
