The religious studies minor invites you to examine religious beliefs and practices in a variety of contexts from within a broadly interdisciplinary framework.

Because this minor integrates a variety of scholarly perspectives, religious studies promotes exciting possibilities of critique and synthesis in the responsible pursuit of knowledge about religion. It is especially valuable for students majoring in history, English, anthropology, and political science, but is available for anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of religion in human affairs.
