Why Choose the Religious Studies Minor?

The purpose of a minor in Religious Studies is to introduce our students to the religious and philosophical thoughts and institutions of the world, both ancient and modern. To understand the religious and philosophical component of human experience has enormous value, and is of great importance, in our world; for it enriches our understanding of ourselves and our culture, and expands our understanding of the experience and culture of others by introducing us to the experiences and cultures of the world.

Admission Requirements

This Religious Studies minor is open to any student admitted to Ferris State and pursuing a baccalaureate degree. The minor is designed to compliment any Ferris major program. Students may use only one-third of the credits in a minor that overlap with the student's major. For example: If a minor is 18 credits, 6 credits may be applied to the minor that are also used in the major. Students may apply 6 credit hours of overlap between minors.

Graduation Requirements

An academic minor may only be awarded upon completion of a baccalaureate degree at Ferris State.
