Religious Studies Minor

A religious studies minor is a valuable way to enhance many primary areas of study, such as anthropology, philosophy, history, English, psychology and more. The minor helps students understand a wide range of social issues and offers insights into politics, ethnicity, economics, public policy and family life. Students develop critical-thinking abilities, analytical reading and writing skills and deepen their capacity for interpretation and comparison, abilities essential to every field of study. While some may consider a further study in theology or pastoral ministry, students will be prepared for careers in a variety of fields.

The Department of Religious Studies offers a flexible minor that requires 18 credit hours in Religious Studies courses.
