Minor in Religion

FALL 2017 COURSES | Minor Worksheet

Why has religion become such an important and controversial part of modern life around the world? What do Americans, who live in the most religiously diverse society on earth, need to know about religious ideas, values and beliefs in this country and around the world?

Explore the Religion Minor, which was offered for the first time in the fall of 2009 by the Department of History, Political Science, Philosophy and American Studies.

If you are currently a religion minor, make sure to check out the changes to the minor that took effect in fall 2014. Whether your focus is in liberal arts, business, education, pre-med, nursing or another discipline, you can use the religion minor to enhance your major.

If you are interested in adding the minor in religion, please complete the religion minor form and submit it to Dr. David Damrel in Media 132.
