The Religious Studies Program provides a supportive and nurturing community experience for their students through the shared activities of the Religious Studies Student Organization.
Religious Studies Student Organization
Our purpose is to give students an official voice within both the Religious Studies program and UWM. Additionally, we want to help create a relaxed and safe atmosphere for the academic, non-sectarian study of all religions. We sponsor events that bring about a deeper understanding of religion and how it pertains to other fields of study.
Outstanding Capstone Award
At the end of each academic year, a member of the Religious Studies faculty reviews all the term papers submitted in capstone courses during that year. The most articulate and insightful paper is chosen to receive the Outstanding Capstone Award. In order to qualify for this award, a paper must receive a letter grade of A or A-, and the author must be a declared Religious Studies major. The Outstanding Capstone Award will be presented during the Religious Studies commencement.
