The minor in religion encourages students to explore issues of personal faith, whether their own or those of others, or both, in a rigorous, sympathetic yet critical way. It gives students the opportunity to develop an appreciation of the history and Scriptures of Christianity, the world's largest religion. Religion is also studied as a social phenomenon. It is therefore an ideal minor for those majoring in the behavioral sciences and political studies, as well as history and other cognate subjects. A student who engages in religion as a minor will therefore learn to assess both personal issues of truth, ethics and values; but also how religion shapes and is shaped by broader societal forces.
