Some Religious Studies majors choose to complete an Honors project on a topic of their interest. Most or all of the work associated with an Honors project is done in the senior year, though it may be begun earlier, and culminates in a research or critical paper or its counterpart in the creative arts.
Other students choose to work on a special project or explore topics and materials that are not covered in regular coursework by enrolling in an independent study with a faculty member.
Here's a recent sampling of Honors projects completed by Religious Studies majors:
Asian Student Organization, Hillel, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Caribbean Students Association, Latin American Organization and Project Nur are student-run organizations that may be of interest to students studying Religious Studies.
