The Religious Studies Minor
The Religious Studies minor was introduced in 2003 for students who want to deepen their study of religion. Currently Cal Poly has about 30 Religious Studies minors.
This minor provides students with cross-cultural, interdisciplinary approaches to understanding diverse religions. Our focus is on the manifold ways religion has shaped and continues to shape our world and the people who live in it. Because religions have such a prevasive influence on culture and society, a background in Religious Studies is an asset to students in their personal lives, their broader academic goals, and their professional careers. A minor in Religious Studies enhances a degree in any major.
