About the Program

In Olivet’s religious studies and ethics minor, you’ll take courses in world religions, ethics and society, theories and methods in the study of religion, scripture and its interpretation, and church history. By studying religious texts, understanding church history and utilizing the field of ethics, you’ll be able to analyze the complex role of religion in history, culture and society, and embrace a critical and non-judgmental approach to religious practices.
