What will I learn?

The add-on Graduate Certificate in Religious Studies offers graduate students the opportunity to study religion from an academic perspective and prepares students to be knowledgeable global citizens. The Department of Religious Studies at UT promotes the critical and comparative study of religion. Drawing upon a range of perspectives – historical, anthropological, textual, and theoretical – the Department highlights both the variety and complexity of religious beliefs, practices, communities, and institutions. Our curriculum and faculty thus provide students with a wide variety of methodological skills and perspectives with which to conduct their own research, scholarship, and engagement.
