The Senior Capstone Seminar provides the opportunity for students to tie together the courses in the major and to develop a perspective for the practical application of knowledge. It enables students to develop an appreciation of how each area of study contributes to an understanding of citizenship in a global community.
Studying abroad is also a popular option for many religion majors. Our students often choose to spend a junior semester abroad through the University’s Study Abroad program in cities such as Oxford, Leeds, St. Andrews, Paris, Heidelberg, Puebla, and Seville, or take May term trips to India, China, or Japan. Hands on experience is available to High Point University religion majors through many venues, including The University’s Student Career Internship Program (SCIP). Students may apply for an internship with an off-campus organization related to an intended career. Students may also apply to be a part of the University Chapel Board of Stewards. The Board of Stewards is composed
of students from each class and is responsible for the ecumenical worship services conducted in the Charles E. Hayworth Chapel. These students meet weekly with the Dean of the Chapel to plan the Chapel services. They write prayers, usher, collect and distribute the offerings, participate in each service, and serve a meal to those who gather after the services in the fellowship hall. All HPU students may opt to earn as many as three hours of academic credit through participation in our Christian Worship courses for which Chapel services serve as the practicum.
