Religious Studies pairs well with nearly any major in the College or other IU schools. The minor in Religious Studies offers students an opportunity to explore and understand the religious traditions of the world, as well as to study expressions of religious life and thought that may not fall within traditional patterns. The program teaches a variety of approaches to the academic study of religion and religion's intersections with other aspects of human society and culture.
Students minoring in religious studies will not only be better equipped to understand people of different backgrounds, but will also learn about themselves: how their ideas and values were formed, how they differ from others, and the significance of these differences.
A minor in Religious Studies prepares you for a wide variety of careers, including those in education, the social sciences, law, medicine, and politics.
Our minor requires a minimum of 15 credit hours in Religious Studies.
