Overview

The study of religion at Syracuse University is distinctive in its focus on the category “religion” as an intellectually provocative and problematic concept rather than simply as a descriptive, institutional, or phenomenological label. The department takes the following two premises as fundamental to its educational program: 1)  study of religion must be interdisciplinary, and 2)  study of religion must investigate the material, textual, historical, and cultural dimensions of religions as well as the theories used to produce and analyze them.

The Department offers three concentrations in the following interrelated areas in the study of religion. Each concentration gives sustained attention to religion, theory, bodies, gender and materiality.

Students are admitted to graduate study in the Department of Religion to conduct innovative and interdisciplinary research in one concentration and one traditional or regional religious culture. Once admitted, they may select a secondary concentration and/or religious cultures.

Programme Structure

Currently the department can support study of the following traditional or regional religious cultures:

  • African American
  • American
  • Buddhist
  • Christian
  • East Asian
  • Hindu
  • Indigenous (the Americas)
  • Jewish
