The Department of Religious Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder combines the intimacy of a classic liberal arts education, the rigor of a strong graduate program and a climate of engagement fostered by a research-dedicated faculty who bring teaching to life with diverse experiences and unique perspectives.

Our Master of Arts program in religious studies offers intensive scholarship on a wide variety of topics and themes within the academic study of religion. For students who desire an interdisciplinary program of study, we also offer a dual MA with either the Department of History or the Department of Asian Languages and Civilizations.
