Return to College of Arts and Sciences Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

The minor in Religious Studies is designed for students with a diversity of backgrounds and interests in religion. Just as religion in interrelated with many other aspects of society and culture, the minor in Religious Studies will complement coursework and research on religion undertaken in a broad range of disciplines and major departments. The required courses, Introduction to Religion, and Perspectives on Religion, provide students with an appreciation of the variety of phenomena that has characterized the religious experiences and actions of humanity, and with knowledge of the basic approached that have been used to understand such experiences and actions. Elective courses offered in several departments permit the student to develop his or her interest further, by exploring particular religious traditions and ways of studying religion. The Senior Capstone Project integrates previous learning and can be coordinated with work done in the student’s major, if desired, through arrangement of an appropriate faculty sponsor.
