Minor in Interfaith Studies

The interdisciplinary interfaith studies minor is the perfect supplement for any major, as it gives students the knowledge and skills needed to engage in a religiously diverse world and be literate global citizens. Whatever career path students choose to pursue — whether business or health care, social work or psychology, among others — an understanding of the world's diverse religious and cultural traditions is essential. The interfaith studies minor includes a hands-on internship/practicum as well as exciting opportunities for experiential learning, interfaith service and cooperation, and genuine encounter with the interfaith neighbor — a curriculum designed to help graduates build peace and pluralism through mutual understanding.
