The Department of Religion welcomes study abroad for departmental majors in their junior year. Those juniors who study abroad in their fall semester will be exempt from the colloquium, but will be required to write a fall junior paper under the supervision of a religion department faculty member. The grade for the fall junior paper will constitute 40 percent of the final grade for junior independent work.
Juniors who study abroad in the spring semester will write the required spring junior paper under the supervision of a religion department faculty member. This spring junior paper will constitute 60 percent of the junior independent work. Normally, students are expected to have junior year independent work completed before the start of their senior year.
Students must consult the Departmental Representative before leaving for their study abroad program.
