Students who elect THL/RST as their major, either alone or as part of a double major, complete 10 courses (or 30 credit hours).
Note: The major is a stand-alone program. You can take it in conjunction with another major (double major), and we encourage you to consider this option.
* The elective courses form the core of a concentration within the major.
** Until Major Seminars are implemented majors take 2 additional elective courses.
 Attributes for THL/RST courses do not reflect the degree of difficulty or imply a sequence of study. Rather, they indicate the focus of the course and the target group of students.
 Students preparing for graduate studies in theology or religion are encouraged to begin courses in a classical (Greek/Latin) or modern language (French/German).
