It is difficult to study history, sociology, psychology, political science, anthropology, literature and many other areas without understanding how religious views and ideas function in culture. 

A Study of Religion minor at UNI will give you the opportunity to:

  • explore the history, culture and texts of the major human religions
  • analyze a variety of different belief systems
  • critically examine social and ethical dimensions of religious world views
