Religious Studies Major

Religious Studies Minor

The minor in religious studies can be effectively combined with a complementary major in another field. For example, to combine the minor with history or political science allows for deeper insight into the profound historical connections between events and religious motivations, or between political ideologies and religious discourse. Students majoring in literature, art or philosophy learn to recognize the symbols and ideas arising from the classical religious traditions. Students in the social sciences, especially in psychology, sociology and anthropology, will find that the religious studies minor complements and focuses their major course work.
