Religious Education Minor
Religious education is a theological and interdisciplinary discipline by which people help others develop their intrinsic bond with God and find meaning within their everyday life experiences. In particular, Christian religious education, while open to genuine dialogue with people of other religious and faith traditions, has as its starting point the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
