Resources in the Religion Department
- Graduate School Files. See the wire file box on top of the file cabinet in the religion department lounge.
- Bulletin Boards. Note the timely announcements about internships/fellowships/programs on the Bulletin Board outside the religion suite.
- Talk to faculty. We represent a range of graduate institutions and have a good sense of what religion major alumni are doing. Professor Asuka Sango serves as the Career Services Coordinator.
