About

Our 45-credit master's program in Religious Studies at the University of Denver provides you with the research, knowledge and skills to enter a doctoral program.

Overview

The University of Denver's MA in Religious Studies takes a flexible approach, grounding students in theory while equipping them with practical skills through site visits, service learning, research and study abroad opportunities. Based on their interests and goals, students can customize their educational experience by choosing from one of five areas of specialization and one of four degree-completion options.

Graduates offer employers a range of transferable skills, including cross-cultural analytical abilities, flexible problem-solving experience, and strong verbal and written communication skills. 

Key Features 

  • Additionally, broad exposure to critical theory, as well as the intersections between religion and politics, tends to make students critical thinkers with a lens on contemporary issues.
