Students must complete the third year of a language appropriate for utilizing primary sources in their major concentration, and develop first-year reading knowledge of a secondary foreign language necessary for reviewing published research in the chosen area (e.g. German, French). The graduate program coordinator must approve language selections.
Students must achieve a basic competency in the history of world religions. If done prior to entry, students can take a written certifying examination. Or, based on course work at another institution, have this requirement waived with written approval from the graduate program coordinator. Otherwise, students should take JSIS B 201 and 202.

Some other courses, with the approval of the Graduate Program Coordinator (GPC), Professor James Wellman, may be substituted.
Students must complete both a major and minor concentration. Selection of all courses is done in consultation with the graduate program coordinator, but detailed information on each of the major concentrations can be found in the handbook or the Comparative Religion Concentrations handout.
Between these courses and the Historical Relations course, students must complete 26 credits. Generally these courses should be at the 400 level or above, but at least 8 credits must be at the 500 level or above. 300 level courses can only be counted here with written approval from the Graduate Program Coordinator.
Students submit either 1 or 2 research paper(s) to a Supervisory Committee and take both a written and oral exam. With the approval of the graduate program coordinator, students select three members of the Comparative Religion faculty to serve on their Supervisory Committee. Both the major and minor concentrations should be represented on this committee, as well as the Theory.
