Our Graduate Programs

Welcome to the Department of Religion

Thank you for visiting the webpage for the Department of Religion at the University of Georgia. In the context of the challenges posed by COVID-19, let me begin by encouraging you to contact me if you are in need of assistance or guidance at this time. More generally, I would like to express my strong commitment to our graduate students, majors, minors, and the many other students who come into contact with our department. We welcome inquiries from prospective students, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and we strive to provide a stimulating and supportive environment for our current students.
