Minors Snapshot - Global Religions and Global Issues


The minor is a part of the Department of Philosophy and Religion, a program within the College of Arts and Letters.

The minor is intended for students who want to better understand the role played by religion in contemporary global events: from religious terrorism to nonviolence, from the suppression of women to the advocacy of civil rights. In this minor, students will study major global religions and their impact on real-world social and political issues. The minor may be of particular interest to students in the social sciences but all students with an interest in the subject are welcome.
