The Library offers many workshops throughout the academic year. In addition, the religion specialist offers workshops specifically designed for those studying religion and for those writing a BA thesis in religious studies. If you are teaching a class, she will work with you to offer a workshop catered to the needs of a specific class assignment. Instructors can also link to this religion guide on their Chalk sites.
