PART OF THE GLOBAL CONNECTIONS FLIGHT PATH

Minor: Religious Studies
(REL)

From antiquity to the present, religion has provided a vocabulary for individuals to confront ultimate questions about the meaning of life. Understanding the role of religion is critical for analyzing socio-political forces shaping the world today. The Religious Studies Department at the University of Oregon offers courses that reflect the research expertise of the faculty. Most seminars are small, allowing for deep exploration of the material. The critical reading, analytical thinking, and writing skills students hone as a Religious Studies minor, along with knowledge of global religious traditions, will serve them well in whatever career path they choose.
