Religious Studies Minor

Program Coordinator: Mary Nyangweso (D 303 Brewster Building; 252-737-2422;

Religious studies is a nonsectarian and interdisciplinary program designed to provide students with an understanding of religion as historical and cultural phenomena. Courses offered explore religion in its various dimensions – aesthetic, anthropological, ethical, historical, literary, philosophical, political, psychological, and sociological. The major advisor should send a potential minor to the program coordinator for advising. 

A maximum of 6 s.h. may be used to satisfy general education requirements and requirements for the religious studies minor. No course work in the student’s major field of study will be accepted for credit toward the minor. Study abroad programs having the prior approval of the program coordinator will be accepted for a maximum 6 s.h. of credit toward the minor. Additional courses beyond those listed below will be accepted if they significantly further the student’s understanding of religion; prior approval by the program coordinator is required for additional courses.
