Religious Studies Minor


The Religious Studies minor is a selection of classes taken along with your major.  The minor requires 15 credit hours (5 courses) in religious studies (RELS).  The minor allows you to follow your curiosity and interests, in conjunction with your major. The Religious Studies minor deepens majors in related humanities and social science fields such as History, Psychology, Philosophy, and English, and brings new dimensions to majors in fields such as Agriculture, Business, Education, Engineering, Biology, Architecture, pre-med studies, pre-law studies and the physical sciences.
