Religious Studies Minor
Religion has played a major role in the human experience. Many of our core values, our conception of ourselves, our artistic expressions, our role in life and history originate in religious texts, traditions, and environments. For many, religion is where to turn to answer the ultimate questions of human existence. But what is religion? What do other religions believe? How does one evaluate religious claims?
The Religious Studies Program at Wayne State University offers undergraduate students the option of a Religious Studies Minor (to be noted on students' official transcripts). This is designed for undergraduates majoring in other areas or disciplines. It comprises a minimum of 21 credits to include the following:
1. One course in Comparative Religion (e.g. NE 1900: Comparative Religion [3 cr.])
2. A course on one of the following topics:
3. At least four additional religious-studies courses, either from the posted list or approved by consent of the Director of Religious Studies. Among these must be courses on least two different religious traditions, including at least one of the following: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism or Hinduism.
4. A capstone research project, either done as a supervised independent study or in conjunction with an approved Religious Studies course. Consult director for approval. [3 cr.]
