Minor in Religious Studies
We are participants in a global community. From our next-door neighbors to our coworkers, our community partners to our global interactions, we are becoming involved with people from all over the world as never before. Religious studies minors leave APU with a greater ability to engage the world from a place of sincere Christian faith, awareness, and praxis.
The religious studies minor offers courses in global religious studies, employing a dialogical perspective that invites conversation between Christians and people from non-Christian religious traditions. This program prepares undergraduate students for responsible understanding of, and engagement with, people of a variety of global religious traditions in order to be faithful, well-informed, and culturally sensitive participants in intercultural and interreligious dialogue.
Students must achieve a 2.5 cumulative GPA for all courses required for this minor.
