Religious Studies & Theology (Minor)


CAS Students engage in discussion while wearing Trinity SweatshirtsOur minor in religious studies and theology provides students with the opportunity to explore perennial human questions concerning ultimate meaning and value. Because of its formative role in Western culture as well as Trinity’s own origins in the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, Christianity serves as the point of departure for the academic study of theology. However, we also offer students the opportunity to study world religions and the interaction between religion and society.

Through both theological and religious studies, we assist our students in reading texts more closely, examining cultures and histories with an analytical eye and exploring their own and others’ faith traditions in a respectful and constructive manner.
