This minor combines the study of two of the oldest and most enduring areas of inquiry into the meaning and purpose of humankind: philosophy and religion.
Regardless of the particular path of study, all students will engage in a thoughtful investigation of diverse responses to humanity’s enduring questions about self and the world.
The critical study of religion and philosophy strengthens skills that are as important for earning a living as they are for leading a purposeful life:
- Analysis, and interpretation
- Heightening the individual’s capacity for self-knowledge
- Effective engagement with our complex world, and vision.
The skills gained in religious or philosophical studies include critical thinking, concise writing and cultural awareness, which are highly marketable to a variety of professions, including working in academia and the public sector.
