This program offers the student numerous ways to understand how religion works as a dynamic aspect of culture, and how individuals interact with their social environments to create systems of belief and ritual in their efforts to make sense of the world. Six courses in religion and six courses in anthropology are required with a grade of C or higher, as specified below. Those twelve courses must include Anthropology of Religion (taken either as CAS AN 384 or as CAS RN 387). Candidates for the B.A. with this joint concentration may not pursue a second concentration in religion or anthropology. They are, however, encouraged to take courses beyond the required twelve in either or both disciplines. To ensure the most suitable course of study for the prospective student’s areas of interest, courses should be selected in consultation with the program advisor. For further information about the joint program, contact the program advisor or either department’s Director of Undergraduate Studies.
