Graduate Student Association

The Department of Religious Studies Graduate Student Association is an organization whose main goals are to enhance student learning inside and outside the classroom. We aim to create an environment of intellectual growth, peer support and academic success. As a student organization, we also want to create long-lasting friendships through a variety of social events. We host speakers from other departments and schools whose interests coincide with ours. Once a month students present their works-in-progress and receive productive feedback from other students. We also frequently hold professional development lunches where departmental faculty members share their wisdom with our students.

The Department of Religious Studies GSA also offers leadership opportunities for students. Below is a list of our officers and their contact information. Feel free to contact us with any questions!
