Religion

Religious views vary greatly between countries and regions. Perhaps you are going to a country where you will be in the religious minority…or majority. In any case, the resources provided here can help you learn how your religious beliefs may be perceived and become familiar with religious policies and practices in your host country. If you wish to request particular religious accommodations such as a special diet or time away to attend services, please bring these up to your Carleton program director or non-Carleton program provider early in the planning process.
