Why get a Religious Studies Minor?

Religion is a pervasive and powerful phenomenon, expressing that which people ultimately value. In an increasingly interconnected world, it is ever more critical for educated persons to study religion in its many expressions. The Department of Classics, Philosophy, and Religious Studies offers a major and a minor program in Religious Studies. Courses in religious studies provide students with an opportunity to understand their own religious heritage and to know and appreciate other religious traditions. Religion is studied as a living part of its larger cultural setting, not merely as an isolated phenomenon. The approach to the subject matter is descriptive and historical.
