Maricopa Emergency Management System Alert

  CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE:   Campus is Closed. All in-person activities and events are postponed. In-person and hybrid courses have been moved online. Online/distance classes continue as scheduled. Students are encouraged to contact their instructors for any additional class information.

Religious Studies

The discipline of Religious Studies is perhaps the most inter-disciplinary field in higher education. Religious Studies encompasses philosophy, anthropology, sociology, psychology, folklore, literature, languages, among many other disciplines. A broad and deep knowledge of the comprehensive worldviews presented by the world’s religions prepares the student well for navigating an increasingly complex world.

Students in the Religious Studies program earn the Associate of Arts, which prepares them for transfer to a four-year program. If students follow the correct transfer path, they enter transfer partner universities as junior. Courses are available in-person (day and evening) and online. 

The minimum time to complete the Associate of Art degree is four full-time (15-16 credit hours) semesters for students who have no pre-existing college credit.
