1.0 additional course in Religious Studies at the 2200 level or above.

Note:  Students using Philosophy 2660E to meet module requirements need only take an additional 0.5 Religious Studies course at the 2200 level or above. If both Religious Studies 3300F/G and Philosophy 2660E are taken, Philosophy 2660E may still be counted as a Religious Studies course at the 2200 level.

* All students pursuing an Honors Specialization or Major module in Catholic Studies for Teachers  will be expected to complete field placements in second and third year. These two 0.25 service learning courses will be evaluated on a PASS/FAIL basis.

Religious Studies 2208U: Catholic Education (1) in second year.
Religious Studies 3308U: Catholic Education (2) in third year.

In addition to completing the module requirements noted above, students must successfully complete courses to support a second teachable subject area, with a minimum average of 75% on these courses, with no course grade less than 60%.

Note: This module requires Religious Studies 2203F/G, which has Religious Studies 1023E as an antirequisite.  Students who have completed Religious Studies 1023E must substitute an alternate 0.5 course in Religious Studies at the 2200 level.

Note: Students should be aware of the following course sequencing issues with respect to this module:

1) Religious Studies 2271F/G and Religious Studies 2272F/G cannot normally be taken until at least third year as they require prerequisites of Religious Studies 2201F/G and Religious Studies 2202F/G.
2) The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies offers certain courses in alternate years;  students are responsible for checking the Departmental Website for course rotation information.
