Overview

If you decide to take Honours Religious Studies, you can choose between two concentrations: Western Religions or Asian Religions.  

You have a lot of freedom when it comes to crafting your schedule and curriculum; you have multiple lists of courses to choose from in areas such as Asian Languages and Religions of Asia. The concentration only requires you to take three courses: Hinduism and Buddhism, Theories of Religion, and one Honours Seminar. 


Careers

Depending on your wider plan for your degree, a concentration in Asian Religions can open many new and exciting doors for you. You can enter the working world right after graduation, or you could choose to attend graduate school so that you can further research Asian Religions.  

Some Careers include: 

  • Researcher 
  • Professor 
  • International Aid/Development Worker  
  • Political Risk Analyst  
  • Public Affairs Consultant
