Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Religion Boston University



Course info


The purpose of the PhD in Religion program is to train scholars of religion who will distinguish themselves through research, teaching, and service to universities, colleges, and the world at large. The program’s curriculum is meant to ensure that students are well-prepared to produce high-quality academic work in their chosen areas of specialization while also remaining fully engaged in the broader trends in the study of religion most relevant to their work.

The program is guided primarily by the faculty of the Department of Religion, but our graduate faculty in Religion includes members from additional departments in GRS as well as faculty from other schools across BU. Program faculty stress methodological rigor and theoretical engagement; many have particular interests in religious interactions and inter-religious boundaries.
