Religious Education (Arizona State University)
The bachelor’s program in religious education prepares students for a career in public service, non-profit work, marketing, teaching and much more. It’s a versatile 120-credit hour program that takes approximately four years to complete. Courses concentrate on a wide variety of religious disciplines such as Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Native American traditions, among others. It ties religious teachings with contemporary issues, so students also have an opportunity to learn about history, philosophy, literature, political science and anthropology.
By writing papers, participating in discussions and collaborating with peers, students develop critical thinking skills they can apply to their careers. Learning about the human experience is valuable for graduate programs as well, especially social services, business, law or the arts.
Arizona State University admits students who demonstrate adequate educational competencies. Students who get accepted typically have a GPA of 3.00 or higher and graduate at the top 25% of their class.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
