Checklist of Materials to Submit

1. Sophomore Plan of Study Cover Sheet [pdf]

2. Sophomore Plan of Study Statement

This statement should give the Religion Department some sense of what interests you in the study of Religion as a major or minor and some sense of other academic interests that may be important to you (e.g., other components of your program [majors, minors] ). This statement is a way for us to get to know something about your interests in the field of Religion, and may prompt us to make suggestions about your program or to keep you in mind as we think of opportunities that may be of interest to you.  

A statement in the range of three-quarters of a page, to a page in length (double-spaced) is generally sufficient. The Religion Department Chair is available to read drafts of Sophomore Plan of Study Statements. See Guidelines.

3. Semester By Semester Course Planning Sheet [pdf]

This includes (a) a listing of current and past religion courses, and (b) a working list of Religion courses to be taken in future semesters (include Religion Café in Fall 2014). We understand that there may be changes to this list, but your tentative list of courses gives us a sense of how you are planning your program at this point. If you are planning to pursue off-campus study for a semester or a year, please note this as well.

4. Honors Application Form [pdf]

Include if you are applying for Honors.

5. The Sophomore Plan Part II, [pdf]

an opportunity to intentionally name and plan for a non-academic goal
