Religion Curriculum Overview

There is a growing realization in the world that humans are by nature religious beings, and they make decisions based on spiritual as well as material values. The religion minor addresses such questions as: How does religion help the individual live a well examined life? What is the importance of religious values for the individual and for the human community? How does theological literature relate to social issues? You’ll explore how religious perspectives have a significant role in public life and have opportunities to observe and reflect on religious activities of faith communities in the Twin Cities. The religion minor includes 19-20 credit hours of theology courses taken in conjunction with a different bachelor’s degree major.

Students take three 300-level theology courses in addition to the required courses for a total of 19-20 credits.

Note: Students take either THL100 or THL206
