Take one or two classes

Religion classes are open to all majors at Carleton. If you don’t want to do a degree or a minor, consider taking a course out of a general interest in Religion. Who knows where that might lead?

A complete list of Religion courses and course descriptions may be found at the Religion entry in the Carleton Undergraduate Calendar as well as this site’s Religion Courses Page.
