Welcome to the website for the Department of Religion at Florida State University. The various links indicated on this page will provide you with information about our programs, faculty and staff, ongoing research, and teaching.
We are embarking on our forty-seventh academic year as a department, and are looking forward to visiting lecturers, the annual international grad student conference, departmental colloquia, Religion Club events, and various other occasional academic activities and social gatherings.
The study of religion at Florida State University is located squarely in the tradition of humanities scholarship. Our faculty represent a wide range of research orientations and our programs operate in close collaboration with several other departments and programs at the University. Please take time to visit the links provided for the various institutes, centers, programs, and affiliated departments. And please write with questions and comments—we’d like to hear from you.
