PhD Minor

PhD Minor Requirements

Students interested in a doctoral minor in religious studies meet with the PhD minor advisor to plan their course. Minors are expected to achieve a grade of B or better in four religious studies program courses totaling at least ten credits at the 300 level or above. One of these four courses must deal with approaches to religion; RELIG ST 600 Religion in Critical Perspective is strongly recommended. In order to receive course credit toward the minor, students must register for crosslisted courses from within religious studies rather than from within any crosslisting department. The PhD Minor Form, which certifies completion of these requirements, as well as a list of courses satisfying the approaches requirement, are available in the program office.


Prof. Susan Ridgely, Director of the Religious Studies Program, is the advisor for the PhD Minor.
