PhD in Religious Studies

Visit our joint Religious Studies PhD Program website.


The deadline to apply for admission to the joint PhD program for Fall 2020 is February 1, 2020.

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.
