Minor in Religious Studies

Prospective minors must consult with the chair of the religious studies department. With the help of a departmental advisor, students plan a series of courses totaling 18 credits in one of the following areas of concentration:

Note: Only two courses may be applied from the 100 level.

  • Roman Catholic Theology (recognize the methods and sources of Roman Catholic Theology)
  • World Religions (recognize and research world religions, both Eastern and Western)
  • Ethics (emphasize a personal and communal process of moral decision making from professional, cultural, and religious perspectives)
  • World Scriptures (read and explore the original sources of various world religions in translation to appreciate the literary richness of selected world religions)
  • Spirituality (to explore the forms, traditions, and practices related to the human experience of transcendence)

Note: Courses to be used for each of the minor concentration areas must be approved by the chair of the religious studies department. No more than two courses taken to meet a student’s major requirements may be applied to the religious studies minor. A grade point average of 2.00 is required for all courses taken in residence that may be applied to the minor.
