Graduate Studies

Mormon Studies at UVA is a program focus or optional subspecialty for those obtaining a graduate degree in Religious Studies. In other words, as is the case with the study of all religious traditions at the University, no graduate degree is offered in Mormon Studies specifically, but rather in the discipline of Religious Studies and with a research and teaching specialty in Mormon Studies. Although primarily located  in the American Religions Area of the Graduate Department of Religion, Mormon Studies provides training to students in any other Area of the Department or the University, upon request.
