Religion Minor

(15 credits)

The study of religion is increasingly essential to understanding the world around us, no matter what the academic specialty or career field of a student might be. A Religion Minor identifies a graduate as someone who has become knowledgeable about religious traditions and has reflected critically on the religious dimension of human experience, as well as the relationship between religion and culture.

Many of the courses required for minors may also fulfill or partially fulfill a General Education category. For more information, see the General Education Requirements section. Some courses required for minors may also satisfy courses required for majors. Students pursuing a minor should notify and consult with the appropriate department chair and complete the appropriate paperwork with the Registrar’s Office so that it can be noted on the transcript.
