Religious Studies is one of the most fulfilling, rewarding, and challenging subjects for study in today's university, and Kennesaw State is proud to be able to provide students an opportunity to pursue its rich and variegated specialties.
At Kennesaw, the minor in Religious Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to engage students in conversations and study on various issues and perspectives of world religions. The courses you take provide the language and concepts you will need to understand and participate in dialogues about different world religions in their variety and commonalities, in their multifaceted contributions to and complications of our global societies.
The minor program in Religious Studies is built on three wide-ranging courses that offer historical, philosophical, and sociological foundations for the minor and for further and higher-level study in disciplines participating in the minor. Then, students choose two courses on subjects within the fields of Religious Studies offered by a variety of disciplines, some are one-time courses, others are offered annually. Or with permission and guidance from the Coordinator of Religious Studies, you may undertake a unique Direct Study or study-abroad trip relevant to this minor. The opportunities are wide and exciting!
