Religion

The major in religion provides a broad academic study of religion from a humanistic point of view. It covers the principal religions of the world, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Shinto. In addition, it offers courses in African-American Religion and Native American Religion, as well as programs in classical Hebrew and Arabic.

Institute for Behavioral Research

The Institute for Behavioral Research plays an important role on the campus of the University of Georgia. We work to provide services, information, and support that can enhance the quality, comprehensiveness, and relevance of social and behavioral research at the University. From humble beginnings as an interdisciplinary discussion group, we have blossomed into a multifaceted research institute. However, we remain committed to the same core principles of service, scholarship, and accessibility that have characterized the IBR from its inception.

Institute for Women's Studies

Traditional academic disciplines have devoted little systematic attention to issues of gender, race, class, and sexuality. In the past 30 years, feminist scholars have contributed to the reinterpretation of existing data and to the presentation of new knowledge about the diversity of women's experiences. Through coursework and outreach, the Institute for Women's Studies offers students an opportunity to explore women's lives in global and multicultural contexts.
