Departmental Facilities
The School of Religion is housed on three floors of Theological Hall, one of the oldest buildings on the campus of Queen's University. This space includes seminar rooms, lounges, and offices. The main office is on the second floor.
 
Graduate students employed as teaching assistants enjoy shared office space. In addition, Theological Hall houses a semi-public computing site.
 
The Stauffer Library has substantial holdings in religious studies, continually being augmented with a strong acquisitions policy.
Field of Research

The Master's program in the School of Religion has no specific field of research. Faculty are available to supervise research on a wide range of cultures, traditions and historical periods.

Graduate Student Support Assistance is available through the system of Ontario Graduate Scholarships. The university offers a number of senior fellowships, Queen's Graduate Awards, and other support for students in masters' programs. Departmental Teaching or Research Assistantships are awarded to suitably qualified students.
MASTER OF ARTS

Applicants are accepted under the General Regulations of the School of Graduate Studies.

Normally, the minimum qualification for admission to the Master of Arts Program in Religious Studies is upper second-class standing in a four-year Honours undergraduate degree program in Religious Studies, or equivalent, awarded by a recognized university.

The program requires four full courses (24 credit units) or their equivalent, including RELS-801* and RELS-802* (Core Courses) and RELS-898 (Master's Essay). At least 1.0 course (6.0 credit units) must be taken from the lists of Elective Courses and Reading Courses. Of these, at least one half-course (3.0 credit units) must be chosen from the list of Elective Courses. Of the four full courses (24 credit units) or their equivalent taken for the degree, no more than 1.0 courses (6.0 credit units) may be selected from the Reading Course list.

Students who have not completed in their undergraduate programs the equivalent of the Queen's University course RELS-354 "Theory in Religious Studies" will be required to take RELS-854 in addition to the required 24 credit units.

 
Language Requirement
Before completing the M.A. degree, students are required to give evidence of a reading knowledge of at least one language, in addition to English, elected from the languages of modern scholarship and/or necessary source languages. Normally, this requirement will be satisfied by undergraduate standing in one full course (6.0 credit units), Ontario Academic Credit, or the equivalent.
