The department recommends that students take REL 200 in the first or second year.

Department faculty recommend that students who intend to pursue graduate studies in the Judeo-Christian tradition satisfy the requirements for the religion major by taking electives in that tradition.

The department recommends that students who intend to pursue graduate studies in world religions take REL 301, REL 304, PLRL 301 and PLRL 306 either in satisfying the above requirements or among their electives.

Department faculty urge students who intend to pursue a higher degree in religious studies to take more that the minimum number of hours required to complete an undergraduate major.

Although the courses listed below may not be counted as electives within the religion major or minor, the religion faculty commend them to students as worthy complements to their religion courses:

ART 201 Meaning and Method in Art
ART 220 History of Art I
ART 221 History of Art II
ART 308 Myths, Saints, and Symbols
ART 351 Medieval Art
CL 202 Mythology
CL 302 Classical Mythology
HON 308 Dante and Giotto

Religion majors who wish to study abroad in the junior year should keep this plan in mind when scheduling courses each semester. If they wish to study in a country where a foreign language is spoken, they must be sure to enroll in the appropriate language courses at Hood in the freshman and sophomore years.
