Comparative Theology Seminar

The Comparative Theology (CT) Ph.D. seminar (also known as the CT Colloquium) focuses on historical and methodological questions relevant to Comparative Theology as a whole, as well as on texts and themes specific to a particular religious traditions but with broader comparative implications. Faculty rotate leading the seminar but participate actively every year.

All CT Ph.D. majors are required to participate in the seminar in each year of their program, unless the student is away from campus as part of his or her Ph.D. program. Second year Ph.D. CT majors register to receive pass-fail credit (3 credit hours total, received in spring semester). The course is required but non-credit for all other CT Ph.D. majors. Minors are also welcome to participate in this annual seminar.

Texts are provided to participants free of charge.
