The interdisciplinary Minor in Religious Studies, offered by the Department of Humanities , provides a basic understanding of religious beliefs and practices for those whose careers would benefit from familiarity with some religious traditions, such as those in teaching, business, journalism, social work, medicine, and law. The minor incorporates the study of religious traditions with a reflection on what religion is and how we understand it.
