Jennifer Greenberg

Jennifer Greenberg (AB ’18) has received a Theta Alpha Kappa graduate fellowship to support her studies at the University of Chicago this fall. Greenberg was a religious studies and educational studies major at Washington University.

At Chicago, she will pursue a master's degree in the university’s famed Divinity School, where she will continue to explore her interests in the relationship among religion, national affairs, public life, and culture. “Examining the implications of political secularism, debating the acceptability of religious argument in the public sphere, and reading texts on civil religion are just some of the experiences in my courses at WashU that whet my appetite for continued study into the relationship of religion and public life,” Greenberg said. “The ideas that I picked up in conversations and courses with some of the wonderful professors in Religious Studies and the Danforth Center on Religion and Politics, in particular, are the ones I’m looking forward to examining more in graduate school. It means quite a lot to me that these professors have continued to support my pursuit of graduate study in religion. I am grateful to them for this and their many other forms of support.”

Theta Alpha Kappa is the national honors society for religious studies and theology. Its annual graduate fellowship awards support its mission to encourage, recognize, and maintain excellence in religious studies and theological thought.
