The religious studies major requires 120 credit hours, with 30 hours in religious studies. Students are required to take four courses: Comparative Religion (REL 2300); Religion as Culture (REL 3102); Religion: Theory and Method (REL 3040); and the Senior Seminar Capstone (REL 4910). Students can select any upper-level course with an REL designation for the remaining hours.

Osprey Maps should be used in consultation with an academic advisor after admission to UNF.
