Minor for a Bachelor’s Degree

UCM does not confer teacher certification for this minor.

The study of religion is interdisciplinary and even multidisciplinary in its methodologies, and our courses and instructors reflect this reality. Our courses do not advocate for or against any particular religious group or tradition, and individual courses are designed to meet four primary goals.

  • Students will recognize and apply the practices and vocabulary of the academic study of religion, and be able to distinguish that study from a theological approach to the subject.
  • Students will understand and objectively represent points of view and beliefs foreign to their own experiences and practices.
  • Students will integrate the study of religion into other fields of study, making the professional and social value of such study as a complement to other minors and majors clear.
  • Students will complete assignments demonstrating skills in analytical writing and research.

Minor Requirements: 21 Semester Hours


Study abroad credits will be evaluated on an individual basis; no more than six credits may be transferred in from study abroad or other coursework.
