The deadline to apply for admission to the joint PhD program for fall 2021 is February 1, 2021.

Students studying in a library.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 joint Laurier-Waterloo PhD in Religious Studies offers a concentration in religious diversity of North America.

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

Please note: the Department of Religious Studies only has an undergraduate program and a PhD program. It does not have a Masters (MA) program. For a list of Canadian MA programs in Religious Studies, please see the Masters Portal website.
