Religious Studies

Program Overview

For a truly unlimited subject, where you as a student have the opportunity to continue learning and exploring, consider our program in religious studies.

Our courses in religious studies allow you to focus on a wide variety of world religions — from how they developed to ways in which they are practiced now — and their political, economic, social, and geographical contexts. Not only will you explore the in-depth aspects of individual religions, you may simultaneously discover lateral paths in history, philosophy, theology, anthropology, psychology, and sociology — as well as folklore, literature, and languages.

A truly interesting field, this program is ready for students like you. Make it happen today.

Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.

Why Phoenix College?

From ancient times to the current day, religion has had a major effect on human development. Phoenix College’s Religious Studies program offers courses ranging from world religions to American Indian religions and religion in the modern world.

While our religious studies courses do not lead to any particular degree at Phoenix College, these classes often fulfill the general education requirements needed for a certificate or associate's degree. Graduates often go on to work in the world of education, media, humanities, and more.

Next Steps

Discuss your course load with an academic advisor inside the Hannelly Enrollment Center (HC) at our historic, centrally located campus. Future students may contact the program directors, Dr. Albert Celoza and Roland Walker, for more information.
