The department’s scholarly efforts include individual and team-based research. Our faculty publish with the best university presses, and they have won prestigious research awards, including funding from the American Academy of Religion, the Council on Foreign Relations, Fulbright, Princeton University, the NEH, and the Teagle Foundation. Students are often active in team-based research projects, so potential applicants to our M.A. program are encouraged to discuss research opportunities with the Director of Graduate Studies.
