Religious Studies minor

The study of religion deepens our understanding of human nature and engages us in reflection on life’s greatest questions. In the Religious Studies minor, students study various religions and the social implications of their beliefs.

This minor is for you if:

  • You want to work in any field related to religion.
  • You plan to work in a field which brings you in frequent contact with people of different faiths.
  • You are applying to graduate studies in philosophy, regional studies, or international studies.
  • You are an Education student interested in integrating religion into their classroom work, or who may work in a religious-affiliated school.

Declare a minor by completing the Request to Declare/Change a Major or Minor form and submitting it to the Office of the Registrar. You must have earned a minimum of 45 credits and declared a major before declaring a minor. If you have any questions about this process, please see your advisor.
