Description Queen’s University’s School of Religion offers a theoretically challenging and internationally-acclaimed twelve-month M.A. program in Religious Studies. Students may pick varied courses through which they broaden and deepen undergraduate backgrounds. The program focuses on the relationship between religion and culture (ancient or contemporary). Our courses equip students with the tools to analyze and question issues of politics, culture, race, gender and science in the construction of religion. The program also places an emphasis on contemporary theories and methods in the study of religion. Developing excellent research and writing skills is one of our most important goals. These skills are further honed as students have the opportunity to write a research essay that focuses on a particular religious tradition or phenomenon.
