The interdepartmental minor in Religious Studies provides an opportunity to study religion from a variety of perspectives. The emphasis in the program is comparative, stressing cultural, philosophical, historical, literary, and aesthetic dimensions of religion. Students are introduced to the major world religions and encouraged to explore different topics through a variety of courses offered in eleven different disciplines. As an extension of the Religious Studies Program, the minor provides opportunities to take part in a rich series of lectures by scholars of international renown, forums on religion, and public symposia and panels.
In addition to providing personal growth for students who have an intrinsic interest in the academic study of religion, the minor may help students to pursue advanced studies in religion or to enter related careers in counseling, social work, or in religious institutions.
