The Humanities Minor is an extremely flexible and low-credit hour minor thatoffers students the opportunity to study linguistics, literature, culture, religion, film from a global perspective. The critical thinking, writing, and reading skills developed in these courses are invaluable in all careers. Many of the Cardinal Core courses "double count" towards the minor, so students may find that taking several additional courses will give them a minor that will enhance their degrees, their career, and their lives.
Religious studies courses emphasize world religions and the diverse world. A Religious Studies minor will broaden your horizons through exploration of the comparative historical and global engagement between religions of the world.
The minor provides a concentration in Jewish history, literature and religious beliefs and practices from the biblical period to the present focusing on the ethnic. religious and cultural diversity of Jews worldwide.
This minor is especially attractive to students majoring in Humanities, English, French, or Spanish, as one or more of the courses can count doubly. However, it will also be attractive to students who wish to teach English as a second language, no matter the major, or for those who are preparing to do graduate work in ESL (CEHD) or to pursue the Humanities MA with a Concentration in Linguistics and the Humanities (A&S).
