Adviser: Peter Gregory
The Religion Department takes a decidedly global approach to the study of religion, and hence we offer strong support to our students who wish to study abroad. Religion majors have studied on every continent in the world, in almost every imaginable environment, from Smith programs in Japan and India to independent learning projects in Africa, from yurts in Mongolia to the most prestigious universities in Europe.
In addition to Smith College programs, there are Smith-approved programs in virtually every part of the world, from Samoa to Europe, Asia, Russia, the Americas, and everywhere in between. Visit the Office for International Study for a complete listing of approved programs.
Most study abroad programs offer courses that will count toward the requirements for the religion major. Credit toward the major is also offered for relevant language courses. Students contemplating study abroad should consult with the departmental study abroad adviser to learn more about the requirements and transferring credits.
