Advising and Degree Requirements


The Religious Studies Advisor provides one-on-one academic counseling, as well as information about the degree plan, course descriptions, internships, graduate school and future careers. We encourage you to visit your advisor regularly to discuss your course plans and academic goals. Please email your advisor to set an appointment. 
Advising is required for students new to the major, on scholastic probation, or with 90 or more hours of completed coursework.

Make an Appointment

COVID-19 Changes: Beginning March 16, 2020, we are advising students remotely. No in-person, on-campus advising services are being offered. To schedule a remote appointment with the Religious Studies advisor, please go here. Once you have scheduled a remote appointment, the advisor will reach out to you with instructions for connecting with them during your appointment time. For basic inquiries, the best way to direct your request will be to email Kevin at Depending on the nature of your questions, he may ask you to schedule a remote appointment. If possible, we ask that you do not call or leave us a voicemail. While we are monitoring our voicemails remotely, it will be easier for us to answer your request expediently if you direct it to email.
