Minor Requirements

Religion intersects with all dimensions of human life and expression. The Minor in Religion complements and enhances studies in one's major (e.g., Biology, Business, Psychology, Communication Studies, Vocal Performance, Art, English Writing, Global Studies, Nursing). The Minor can also serve the goal of personal enrichment.

The requirements for a minor in religion are 20 credits.

Religion minors are encouraged to work with a religion faculty advisor to choose courses that support an emphasis (see above) based on their particular interests. Students should normally declare a minor by the end of the junior year. Students may apply to transfer the equivalent of two courses (no more than 8 credits) from outside the college.
