The Department of Religion offers a rich list of courses on a subject that you will encounter in many other departments. This is because religion is at the core of all cultures and societies. Because religion is such a ubiquitous aspect of world culture today, and has been throughout human history, the academic and comparative study of religion study is surely of critical importance for any liberal arts education. Many students find that either a major, modified major, or minor in religion is an excellent choice for a concentration in the liberal arts.
How to Declare your Religion Major, Minor, or Modified Major:
Watch for occasional email announcements (events of interest, major degree requirements, Commencement, etc.) from the Religion Department.
The Dartmouth Organization, Regulations and Courses (ORC) contains online information about Religion course requirements. Please refer to the ORC of your matriculation year for the appropriate major requirements, and/or see the worksheet for your class year, here:
See also the online Religion Course Schedule to find the correct course numbers (include decimals when provided) for the terms being offered.
Students will be able to describe and articulate a wide range of religious phenomena (e.g., ritual, scripture, worship, meditation, religious art, etc.) from multiple cultural contexts.
