Religion 220: Early Christianity in Rome, Religion 221: Medieval Christianity in Central Italy, and Religion 224: Lutheran Heritage in Germany have been offered recently by faculty members as January Term courses. In January 2014, Religion Department faculty members are offering courses in Italy and Hawaii.
In addition to J-Term study overseas, Religion majors and minors are strongly encouraged to study abroad for a semester. Consultation with the student's department adviser or the department chair is necessary before a student applies to a semester away program. Departmental requirements cannot be waived and thus travel abroad for a semester needs careful coordination with the schedule of required courses offered by the department.
PLU students who seek general education credit for a religion course taken in another program overseas must make an appointment with the Department of Religion chair prior to completing the Credit for Study Away materials.
