About This Degree

The minor program in philosophy and religion is designed for students who wish to experience the educational enrichment offered by these disciplines. Philosophy alone, or a minor in combination with religion, may be studied in sufficient depth to enable students to grasp central issues, as well as to confront their own self-awareness in terms of these issues. The minor programs are largely unstructured to allow students to shape their courses of study to their own interests and needs.
