Welcome back to our Q&A series with Religious Studies instructors, alumni, and students. Get to know our people, research, and courses!
If you missed it, check out part 1 of our Q&A with Dr. Batten to learn about the relevance of studying religion and part 2 to learn about our undergraduate program. This week, we will answer questions about job opportunities with a degree in Religious Studies and tips for success.
We are very pleased to announce that three of our PhD students have been successful in the SSHRC competition!
Chris Miller (supervised by Doug Cowan at UW) has been awarded a two-year SSHRCC doctoral award, Doaa Shalabi (supervised by David Seljak at UW) has been awarded one of the prestigious Canada Graduate Scholarships, and Sahver Kuzucuoglu (supervised by Jasmin Zine and Meena Sharify-Funk at WLU) has been awarded a 3-year year SSHRC fellowship.
Congratulations to Religious Studies PhD student Christopher Emory-Moore on winning the 2017-2018 PhD Graduate Award for the CSSR Essay Contest! His essay was on “Present Peace, Future Freedom: Children’s Meditation Instruction in Two Diasporic Tibetan Buddhist Lineages”
