The director of undergraduate studies (DUS) in the Department of Religious Studies is Dr. Rachel Kranson (2606 CL, 412.624.2279). She is happy to talk with you if you are thinking about majoring or minoring in religious studies, or if you have just declared religious studies as your major. She is available to all majors to talk about departmental and career questions, and to offer academic advice and assistance.
If you want to declare a major or minor in religious studies, go to the Student Records Office in 140 Thackerary.
While majors meet with the DUS once a term prior to registration, the director of undergraduate studies is also your gateway to information about your undergraduate career and can advise you about study abroad, internship, and scholarship opportunities; career development; graduate school applications; and so forth. You should also feel free to contact any faculty member specializing in your area of interest. Just make an appointment and stop by!
