Religious Studies

The religious studies program at Nazareth University acts as a perfect accompaniment to any major, teaching important knowledge for an increasingly globalized culture and economy. Whether you are in accounting, English, biology, or music, knowledge of religions and beliefs can be a useful skill to put on your resume.

To complete the religious studies minor, you take 18 credits in Religious Studies, with 15 credits being beyond the 100 level. Through these six classes, you can deeply enrich your academic experience at Nazareth University and demonstrate to employers that you are well-informed about the cultures and beliefs of peoples from around the world.

The religious studies minor is an opportunity to expand your horizons, learning about religions and peoples completely outside of your worldview, or to learn in a scholarly manner about a religion you practice.

We encourage you to take a look at the courses offered in the Religious Studies Department to see what kinds of subjects are addressed in our classes. We are certain there will be several courses that interest you!
