Study of Religion Minor

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

The Study of Religion minor is 18 hours and requires "Religions of the World" and five other religion courses of your choice.
