Prerequisites

Some courses offered by the Department of Religious Studies and Philosophy require that students complete other courses before they may enroll. These prerequisites are clearly stated with the description of each course. When a course has no stated prerequisite, the course will not require specific knowledge taught in any previous course. This does not mean that all courses without prerequisites are elementary, introductory courses. In general, courses with numbers in the 100s and 200s are the best courses for first-year students. Upper-level (300- and 400-level) courses are intended primarily for students who have taken at least one year of college work, including ENGL 106, ENGL 107, or ENGL 206. Other students may enroll with the instructor’s permission or on the basis of placement testing. A “C” or better in ENGL 106, ENGL 107, or ENGL 206 is required before students may take any 300- or 400-level course in the Department of Religious Studies and Philosophy.

Travel Courses

From time to time, the Department of Religious Studies and Philosophy organizes seminars in which students can earn college credit for travel experiences and related academic work.
