The Joint PhD program in Religious Studies

The deadline to apply for admission to the PhD program for Fall 2019 is January 31, 2019.

Drawing on the combined resources of the Department of Religion and Culture at Wilfrid Laurier University and the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Waterloo, the Laurier-Waterloo PhD in Religious Studies offers a concentration in the religious diversity of North America.

Visit the Religious Studies PhD Program website.

See our PhD application checklist. 

Due to budgetary constraints, the Department of Religious Studies is severely limited in our ability to accept students studying on a study permit.
