What different schools have to offer when it comes to studying religion

Recently the American Academy of Religion completed a survey of religion and theology programs in the U.S. and Canada. Almost 900 programs or departments responded, revealing the sheer size and scope of the field. Many of these respondents (over 50%) were part of religious institutions, particularly Protestant and Catholic schools. The other half belonged to public or private, non-religious colleges or universities.

Information on the study of religion must be collected on a case-by-case basis.
