Minor in Religious Studies
The Religious Studies curriculum provides an opportunity for a
multi-faceted reflection on the religious dimension of the human
experience. Students are introduced to the religious patterns of
humanity in a worldwide perspective.
The tradition of the Dominican Order includes “disputatio”
(respectful dialogue) and the search for “veritas” (truth) in all
disciplines. The concepts of the sacred work of “study,” one of St.
Dominic’s Nine Ways of Prayer, is examined as the education
philosophy of the founders of Mount Saint Mary College. Religious
Studies is offered as a minor only.
To minor in Religious Studies, a student needs 18 credits: 12 in
Religious Studies and 6 in Biblical Studies.
