We offer graduate courses that focus on a wide variety of topics and themes that emphasize the interdisciplinary study of religion. Graduate students in our program have recently explored such diverse topics as the sacred and the profane, extinction, materiality, and superheroes. In our courses, students often work with historical, textual, and ethnographic approaches while exploring how different theoretical and analytical lenses can illuminate particular topics in religious studies.
