A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.

A Religious Studies minor helps students understand an increasingly complex world through studying the religious beliefs, explanation and cultures of its people. More than just a course in understanding religious texts, this minor delves into the deeper issues of human nature and how people interact with each other and the world. A Religious Studies minor complements degrees in English and creative writing, law, mass communication, and history especially well.
