Foreign Language study is critical to successful completion of the MA in Comparative Religion at the UW.

All applicants to our MA program - both those without previous foreign language training and those with it - should immediately consider grants for language study available from Foreign Language (FLAS). The application is easily accessible. Deadline is January of each year. Apply early! The FLAS is also open to current graduate students.

Also consider applying to the US State Department's Critical Language Scholarships for Intensive Summer Institutes (US Department of State and the Council of American Overseas Research Centers) for intensive summer workshops
