Minor in Religious Studies
| Degree Requirements

A minor in Religious Studies is a great complement to other majors.  Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the degree, many courses that you have already taken could potentially be counted for the minor.  Course selections should always be made in consultation with the program director.

required Classes

The minor consists of 6 courses:
The first-year theology core course, RSRU 1000-Faith and Critical Reason.
A second-year theology core course on a religious scripture or scriptures.
3-6. Any four electives from the religious studies program offerings.
Note: Among courses 2-6, at least one must have as a major focus a religion or religions other than Christianity. Students may double-count approved religious studies courses toward the religious studies minor and toward another major, as long as at least 14 different courses are taken to complete the major and minor.
