In addition, 12 credit hours in Religious Studies electives are required.
A Religious Studies minor can be combined effectively with a major in many other fields (e.g., psychology, music, social work, etc.).
CAPSTONE REQUIREMENT: Because the ability to integrate interdisciplinary resources is essential to the program, a capstone paper is required in the last course the student takes to meet the program requirements. The parameters of this capstone paper will be negotiated by the student to the satisfaction of the course professor at the beginning of the course.
