Student research

The School of Religious Studies supports a wide range of vibrant student research projects by graduate and undergraduate students. School of Religious Studies students are active in presenting the results of their thesis and course research at national and international conferences, as well as publishing in peer-reviewed journals. They are active as student members of the leading learned societies in the field. On several occasions, the School has also hosted the Eastern International Regional meetings of the American Academy of Religion at which many graduate students present their work. The Centre for Research on Religion (CREOR) welcomes student members from across the university and hosts an annual student-organized international research conference.
