I'm currently searching for a strong M.A. or M.A./PhD. combo program in the Religious Studies field. My interest is in Christianity and the ways it has shaped American society/politics/culture. I have a B.A. in Sociology and was thinking about pursuing an M.A. in Sociology of Religion, but I am open to other programs that would allow me to focus on my area of interest, as mentioned above. Unfortunately, for familial reasons, I am restricted to programs in the Southern California area. Anyone have any suggestions?
