Welcome! For more than 50 years, the University of Waterloo has offered courses in religious studies. Religious Studies is a flexible program that offers several plans for undergraduate students and includes a wide range of courses. Students are able to specialize in three main areas: World Religions; Christian Traditions; and Religion, Culture, and Society. Religious Studies is also a great complement to other programs where students can pursue a joint honours degree or a minor.
Our faculty have varied research interests and also contribute to other university departments and programs, including: Sociology, Jewish Studies, Peace and Conflict Studies, Social Development Studies, Sex, Marriage, and the Family, Fine Arts, and Graduate Theological Studies.
The Department of Religious Studies at the University of Waterloo in partnership with the Religion and Culture Department at Wilfrid Laurier University, offers a joint PhD in Religious Studies with a unique concentration on religious diversity of North America.
