Evening Course Rotation by Modality

Modality here means indicating in what format a course is going to be offered (evening, telecourse, etc.). Seated means that a course meets in a classroom (as opposed to a telecourse, for example).

This class schedule is tentative and may change (for example, if an instructor is not available to teach a course that had been planned).

This is a deliberately conservative list. We may add more evening courses, but we plan to offer at least these. This list includes:

  • Classes that are offered in the evening (that is, that start at 4 p. m. or later)
  • Classes that are offered in the iCourse system (that is, telecourses)
  • Classes that are offered in a blended format (which generally meet during the day, but only once a week).

Religious studies majors, in addition to 18 hours of required courses, must complete 15 hours from the following four areas. These courses must be distributed so that there will be at least six hours in one area and three hours in each of the other three areas.  Courses must be chosen to include at least one 500-level course and another course at the 300-level or above:

  • History of Religions
  • Biblical Studies
  • History of Judaism and Christianity
  • Religion, Self and Society

The Religious Studies minor does not require taking courses from various areas.
