Theology and Religion, Minor

The theology minor at Marquette provides the tools for critical reflection on what motivates us most deeply. Designed to maximize flexibility, the theology minor allows students to select courses from across the primary sub-disciplines of theology (Scripture, historical theology, systematic theology, ethics, and inter-religious dialogue) so that they can explore questions that appeal to their interests and complement their studies outside the department. The minor in Theology and Religion promotes the development of critical thinking skills that prepare students to find meaningful work and lead a meaningful life in whatever endeavors they pursue after graduation. The broader perspective developed in the theology minor also helps students appreciate the role of religion in society and navigate a religiously diverse world.
