Religious Studies

Religious Studies

Become a reflective and informed student who engages in broader dialogue and debate on the role of religion in our communities and the world. The interdisciplinary minor of religious studies will educate you in the scholarly interpretation of religion while cultivating an understanding and respect for religious diversity and secular perspectives.

Studying religion will prepare you for graduate study in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences, as well as professional programs in business, law, and foreign service. The lessons you'll learn will benefit you in careers such as art, business, education, health care, journalism, and social work.

The religious studies minor is open to all students.

Course work: For the minor, you'll complete a total of 18 credits, consisting of 2 core courses and electives you'll choose based on your individual interests and academic goals.
