Religious Studies at the University of Denver emphasizes religious tradition as a crucial means of insight into contemporary, global issues. World religions deepen how we can understand international relations, politics, economics and more by encouraging conversation that crosses disciplinary boundaries.  


At Religious Studies at the University of Denver we ground religious study in theory while providing experiential opportunities through site visits, service learning, research and study abroad.

You can customize your educational experience by choosing from one of five areas of specialization and one of four degree-completion options (master's thesis, publishable journal article, research project or comprehensive examinations). The critical theory and religion specialization is available in person or online.  


Graduates from our program go on to attend top-tier doctoral programs in religious studies, while others become valuable contributors in career fields such as business, government, social work or journalism.
