The Religious Studies Minor


Any student admitted to an undergraduate degree program at WVU may undertake a minor in religious studies. The minor consists of 15 hours of course work in religious studies, with at least nine hours at the upper-level (300-level or above). A grade of at least “C” must be earned in all courses counted toward the minor.

It is the responsibility of students minoring in religious studies to maintain close contact with the office of the Religious Studies Program concerning the scheduling of the above courses.

The online minor

Students can earn a religious studies minor online by earning a grade of “C” or better in five of the following courses: RELG 102, 219, 231, 232, 303, 304, 305, 310, or 350. Three of the courses must be 300-level. Online courses are available every semester, including the summer term. For more information on the religious studies minor, see the course catalog.
