AMRS Oral Exam

The AMRS degree requires completion of a one-hour oral examination based on a paper that represents the student’s interests in the study of religion. This document is normally the revised version of a paper the student wrote to complete the requirements of a course. The oral examination is convened by the Dean of Students, and includes the student and two faculty members with whom the student has worked. The examination paper is chosen by the student, but the student’s choice must be approved well in advance by the faculty member under whose direction the paper was originally written. 

Use this form to register for the exam. The Dean of Students office will follow up to schedule.
