Image Picker for Section 0
Advisor: Alan Fox

General Requirements

 The minor requires a minimum of 15 credits chosen from among the courses listed here, and must include: PHIL204 (World Religions); at least 6 credits (2 courses) at the 300 level or higher; and courses chosen from at least 3 different departments or disciplines. This last requirement reflects the "interdisciplinary" nature of the minor, in that it exposes the student to a variety of methodological approaches to the study of religion as a cultural phenomenon.
