As a religious studies major at Missouri State University, you can explore all types of religion, learn to think critically and become an excellent researcher and writer. You will benefit from one-on-one attention from one of the largest faculties in the Midwest, and get to study at one of the oldest and largest religious studies undergraduate programs in the state.
Our program also offers exceptional preparation to enter graduate school or seminary.
Our program offers you the opportunity to complete the undergraduate religious studies degree as either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree. If you are interested in learning another language, the BA degree may be right for you, as it requires 12 hours of foreign language while the BS degree does not. Both degrees are non-comprehensive, therefore each requires a minor or a second major.
