Philosophy and Religion (B.A.)

Major: Philosophy and Religion (B.A.)

The department offers a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree with a major in Philosophy and Religion. If a student has a first major that requires a Bachelor of Science or other bachelor's degree, the department may approve the Philosophy and Religion major as a second major under the B.S. or other bachelor's degree.

Majors and minors have the option of blending courses between philosophy and religion. Graduating majors will complete a traditional thesis with opportunities for public presentation and publication, or a culminating project with real-world focus and opportunities for practicum.

**A Philosophy and Religion major customarily earns a B.A. degree. However, if a student has a first major that is associated with a different baccalaureate degree, the Philosophy and Religion major may serve as a second major for the degree associated with the first major (B.S., B.FA., B.M., B.S.N.).
