Religious Studies, Minor

The Religious Studies minor fosters and facilitates an interdisciplinary approach to the academic study of religion. Due to its influential role at the local, national, and international levels, religion requires careful study utilizing academic methods employed in the examination of other cultural institutions. This includes the study of the history, theology, literature, folklore, etc., of various religions in an effort to study religion as a cultural phenomenon. The program is intended to serve our students and community by deepening our understanding of religious beliefs and practices in a spirit of open inquiry. Its aim is neither to endorse nor to undermine the claims of religion, but to create an environment in which various issues can be engaged from a variety of perspectives and methodologies.
