About the Program
The Religious Studies minor allows students to explore the many religions of the world, such as Buddhism, Judaism, and Catholicism, from the different academic perspectives of literature, anthropology, and philosophy. Some students combine the religious studies minor with other relevant coursework to pursue the study of theology or careers in spiritual service.
Dr. Marianne Ferguson will serve as your advisor (for the minor only) until you have completed the program.
