Religious Studies

Religious studies as a teachable subject offers courses that include areas of religion, culture, biblical, Jewish and Christian studies. Courses are also offered which support students' inquiry into Islamic studies, religious traditions of Asia, and North American First Nations spirituality.

Students wishing to teach religious studies must take 36 credits for a first teachable or 24 credits for a second teachable from within the course list of the Religious Studies program. Course selections should be made in consultation with a Faculty of Education adviser and/or the education religious studies adviser. The resulting qualifications will enable the student to design a comparative religion course as well as teach within public, private and secondary school settings.
