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.

The minimum requirement for a minor in global religion and global issues is 18 credit hours.
