Religion

Study Abroad

Religion is a global and comparative field of study, the department encourages majors to study and travel abroad to learn more about sites, lived practices, and archives as it relates to their areas of interest in the study of religion. The faculty in the department actively work with majors to facilitate study abroad opportunities insofar as possible.

Below are some examples of how religion majors have taken advantage of the numerous study abroad opportunities at Reed while meeting the department’s curricular requirements.
