A minor in religion consists of six religion courses of 3 or more credits. At least three of the courses must be at the 300 or 400 level. All minors must take 01:840:211 and 01:840:212. A minimum grade of C is required for every course that counts toward the major.
Religion minors are required to take the vast majority of their religion courses offered by the Department of Religion at Rutgers University. Students may use approved courses toward their minor that are offered by other departments at Rutgers (cognate courses) or by non-Rutgers institutions (transfer courses). But the maximum number of the combination of cognate and transfer courses that can count toward a religion minor is two. The department considers transfer courses in such cases based on whether they fit comparable courses in our department and are of a similar methodology, depth, and rigor. In some cases, the department will refuse to accept transfer courses or only allow them as general electives. Cross-listed courses count toward the minor without prior approval as they are treated as regular courses offered by the department.
