Religious Studies

The minor in Religious Studies is designed to introduce students to the role religion plays in human life and society, as well as to a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, including history, psychology, philosophy, sociology, and gender studies. In addition to gaining knowledge of diverse religious traditions and a context for self-conscious reflection on their own worldviews, students will also hone their critical thinking and communications skills that will prepare them for varied professional careers.

Beyond the Classroom

Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.
