RELI 489 is a two-trimester course. It offers a guided introduction to scholarly research in religious studies. Each student will work closely with a staff mentor within an area of the staff mentor’s expertise. Students will produce a research essay of about 10,000 words, due at the end of the second trimester.

These skills provide an essential foundation for conducting original postgraduate research in religious studies and related fields.
