The Minor in Religious Studies is an ideal way to pursue an interest in religion while focusing on a Major or Honours in another program. You will receive an introduction to the main religious traditions in the world and will be able to choose from an array of courses to complete the minor. You can investigate a particular religious tradition in more depth, study how religion intersects with aspects of contemporary life, or explore ways to understand religious experience and behaviour.

This program is offered in English and in French.
