CAPP has concluded reluctantly that it cannot recommend another position in Religious Studies in the foreseeable future. It recommends, therefore, that Religious Studies consider alternatives to its current major, either with a program on the Canadian Studies model or integrated into an interdisciplinary program such as Women's Studies or the proposed new Cultural Studies program. Either of these models would fit with the current and anticipated curriculum proposals from the department. While student interest in current courses is high, CAPP considers that these courses could continue to be offered, and the areas of religion and culture and religion and women strengthened by integration with other disciplines and fields. Once again, this recommendation is not a reflection of the value CAPP puts on the discipline nor of the quality of the program, but is taken in the context of existing and anticipated resources across the entire University.
