Religion and Culture Certificate (CERT)

Print Version Print
College of Liberal Arts | School of History, Philosophy, and Religion | Interdisciplinary Program Detail


The Religion and Culture undergraduate certificate is designed to provide undergraduate students with both breadth and depth in the academic study of religion, with a focus on how religious practice and ideas are manifested as both a shaper and critic of broader cultures nationally and globally.

The certificate is open to all OSU undergraduates as a supplement to any undergraduate degree program. It builds on a core curriculum of courses in the study of religion in the School of History, Philosophy, and Religion and extends student learning to courses in religion and culture, diversity, literature, and western religious experience in many other academic units. The certificate is recognized with a transcript-visible notation.

For advising, contact David Bishop, Academic Coordinator, School of History, Philosophy, and Religion, 322B Milam Hall, 541-737-8918, David.Bishop@oregonstate.edu.
