College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Religion Minor

This program is designed to address such questions as: How does religion help the individual live a well examined life? What is the importance of religious values for the individual and for the human community? How does theological literature relate to social issues? You’ll explore how religious perspectives have a significant role in public life and have opportunities to observe and reflect on religious faith communities. A minor in religion paired with a major from a variety of disciplines—business, science, sports medicine, the arts—will add a distinctive quality to a graduate’s resume and open careers in those areas.
