Many students at CWRU make the academic study of religion part of their educational experience, whether as a major, a minor, or simply by taking one or two courses. Once they take one course, they usually decide to take more. Our professors are not only world-class scholars but they love what they do, and it’s contagious.
I encourage you to learn more about us at religion.case.edu. When you do, be sure to check out our new Reisacher Summer Fellowship, which provides up to $3,000 to majors and minors for summer projects in religious studies. Meantime, here are a few examples of our courses to give you a sense of the possibilities for studying religion with us:
Whether you are a major, a minor, or an occasional student, the knowledge and skills you gain in religious studies courses – from critical thinking, writing and speaking to creative problem solving to the development of a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges of religious diversity in our world today – will prepare you for successful leadership in a variety of careers. Many of our majors and minors go on to careers in healthcare, law, engineering, journalism, religious ministry, education, software development, media communications, and social work.
If you haven’t already, I encourage you to register for an admitted student program this spring to learn more about Case Western Reserve.
I hope to see you in class! If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact me personally at 216-368-2221 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
