About Religious Studies
As a religious studies minor, you will learn to understand and compare the many religious expressions of humankind. Although the study of religion requires a certain subjective sensitivity to the religious mindset, it seeks to transcend subjective empathy in the pursuit of objective analysis.
We'll help you learn methods used to understand religions. We'll equip you with the perspectives and skills to make meaningful and critical comparisons between different religious traditions. And we'll foster the delicate balance between detachment and empathy.
