The B.A. Honours program offers students a deeper understanding of the discipline of Religious Studies and the sub-fields of Asian religious traditions, Biblical Studies, and the Western religious traditions, including Islam, Christianity and Judaism. In Canada's multicultural society and an increasingly globalized world, a strong grounding in critical thought and analysis is essential to navigating and understanding a variety of religious issues across cultures. As of September 2019 Religious Studies B.A. programs will be renamed to Society, Culture & Religion. The Department of Religious Studies offers courses in the Area of Asian Religions, with special focus on the following three topics: Buddhism; Indian religions; East Asian religions.
