Transfer Credit Policies

When judging whether a course taken at another institution can count as an Oxy Religious Studies course, we look for two things:

  1. That the course takes the same approach to the study of religion as our department—aligning with our intellectual commitments, and our learning goals & outcomes.
  2. That the course requires the same level of rigor as courses in our department, in terms of high-quality and amount of readings, quality and amount of assignments, etc.

Otherwise, the Religious Studies Department policy on transfer credit conforms to College policy. Students should reference the Transfer Credit section for details.
