Religious Studies

A minor in Religious Studies allows students to explore the nature and place of religion in human experience. Students will examine the scriptural, historical, theological, ritual, and ethical traditions of the world's religions and grow their understanding of the cultures of the world through knowledge of their spiritual practices.


You will grow personally and intellectually while developing a deeper understanding of our world and its culture with a religious studies minor at the University of Mount Union. You’ll explore the scriptures, history, theology and ethics of the world's religions, but you’ll also develop skills practical in any number of careers, including data gathering, observation, interpretation, critical analysis, and your ability to empathize with your fellow human beings.
