What will I study?

The Minor in Religious Studies:

Students usually acquire an interest in the religious studies minor after enrolling in HUMN 215, "Introduction to Religion," to fulfill other requirements. HUMN 215 is designed to show the student differing ways of understanding religion and to encourage its serious study. The minor in religious studies includes selected courses from other departments and from a series of specialized seminars.
