Second Major for Students within the Department

(30 Hours)

A second major in the Department of Religious Studies and Philosophy for a student whose first major is within the Department shall consist of 30 hours. All requirements in the second major must be met with the following exceptions:

the 11 hours of departmental core classes will be taken only once and applied to the first major; RELI 490 Senior Seminar will be taken only once and applied to the first major, and an elective course (three hours) will be substituted for it in the second major; in the case of two majors that both require either a practicum or internship (RELI 358 or RELI 397), one course will meet the requirement for both majors, though the course will be applied to the first major and an elective course (three hours) will be substituted in the second major; and additional elective hours in the second major will be reduced in order for the second major to equal 30 hours. In every case for students with two majors within the Department, the first major will total 41 hours and the second major will total 30 hours.
