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

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.
