Religious Studies Minor

Transdisciplinary in approach and global in scope, the minor in religious studies provides students with a firm grounding in the academic study of religion through the informed investigation of the phenomenon of religion in diverse historical, social, cultural, and political contexts. Pretty deep, right? It is. And fascinating. Plus, you’ll get to take classes from so many areas, including anthropology, classical studies, folklore, and women’s studies.
