The 18-hour minor in religious studies intends to acquaint students with the rich history and continuing relevance of the world’s religious traditions. As an interdisciplinary minor, religious studies integrates the interactions between religion and other spheres of human activity such as art, music, literature and politics. Students pursuing the religious studies minor will gain a deeper understanding of religion as an impulse, a practice and a historical force.
