The minor in philosophy + religion invites dedicated students to develop their analytical and research skills in the related fields of philosophy and religion. In addition to serving a student’s particular intellectual interests, the study of philosophy and religion provides an essential connection between the arts and the liberal arts. Actors, directors, filmmakers, animators, writers, dancers, musicians, and graphic or industrial designers with an understanding of philosophy and religion give themselves a deep and wide intellectual foundation for their artistic endeavors.
