Theology and Religious Studies Minor
Our program is designed for students who are fascinated by big questions and how humans have responded to them, throughout history and worldwide.
We will prepare you to systematically and critically analyze a wide range of theological perspectives and ethical questions that are central to the formation of religious identity. As a Theology and Religious Studies minor, you will have the opportunity to explore many facets of the Christian tradition—biblically, historically, theologically, ethically, and aesthetically—and a wide array of world religions. In our increasingly diverse nation and globalizing world, it is crucial that responsible citizens and future leaders understand the beliefs of our neighbors and dialogue partners.
Our outstanding, attentive faculty will guide you through the myriad dimensions of religion in culture, particularly courses that focus on the intersections of religion and critical issues of gender, race, and economics. And as a Hispanic Serving Institution, we offer courses that explore dimensions of Latinx religious experience and spirituality.
Graduates of our program are critical thinkers with a passion for the people. You will be well-equipped for a future in academia, ministry, public service, and so much more.
