The Faculty of Religious Studies has enjoyed a long history at McGill providing a wide range of programs, including BA programs offered in cooperation with the Faculty of Arts, theological programs, and several specialized graduate degree programs.
The Faculty’s expertise in world religions engages many methods and disciplines, combining the rigorous and historically focused study of religious traditions and contexts with approaches that explore contemporary expressions of religions.

The Faculty is the home to the Centre for Research on Religion (CREOR) and McGill’s Initiative in Globalization and the World’s Religions, and is affiliated with the Montreal Diocesan Theological College of the Anglican Church of Canada, the Presbyterian College Montreal, and the United Theological College of the United Church of Canada. Each of these colleges is located close to campus.
