Does anyone know anything on what school to go to if you want to major in Religion? I intend to eventually teach at a university.

Any ideas? Anybody?

Thanks

What about UNC-Wilmington? They look as though they have a good religious department.

Thanks for all the help!

I WISH I could get into Princeton.

Anyone interested in philosophy should read the report on how to evaluate undergrad philosophy departments at http://www.philosophicalgourmet.com/undergrad.htm

Much of the same thinking holds true for evaluating religion departments as well.

Good luck.
