Religious Studies Minor

Program Overview:

The Religious Studies minor introduces students to religious traditions—communities, beliefs, and practices—as well as several methods to study them.  The program offers students noticeable flexibility in subject matter and perspective.  The low number of requirements makes this minor a suitable compliment to many professional and/or course-intensive majors.
