Prospective Students


Peabody Hall at the University of Georgia (UGA)
The Department of Religion is housed in Peabody Hall.

Our undergraduate program offers a wide range of classes in the academic study of religion. Our classes introduce students to different methodological approaches and allow them to focus on specific religious traditions such as Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hindu traditions, Buddhist traditions, African Traditional Religions, and Native American religious traditions. In addition, we offer courses in African-American religion, religion and literature, science and religion, anthropology and religion, and women and religion. The Religion Major is designed to provide students with flexibility to explore their particular interests, while exposing them to a diversity of approaches and religious traditions. The Religion Minor is an attractive option for students who are majoring in other disciplines.


Responding to the alarming trend in antisemitic events in the state of Georgia, UGA’s Jewish Studies has created an experiential learning program that prepares students to engage with others in the campus community and beyond in combating antisemitism. 


Once you're ready to dive into the job hunt, we have all the resources you'll need to get started.


The Department of Religion has a variety of scholarship opportunities for undergraduate students. Please visit our Scholarships & Awards page for more information on the scholarship opportunities.

Every dollar given has a direct impact upon our students and faculty.
