Semester Hours: 18

The minor in religious and intercultural studies consists of 18 SH which will complement other Bible and religion majors and serve students interested in intercultural ministry in fields such as business, education, nursing, peacebuilding and development, and social work. It offers two tracks: religion, which focuses on deepening understanding of religion and how Christian witness is carried out in a variety of religious settings, and theology, which strengthens understanding of the biblical and theological foundations for Christian witness. Both tracks emphasize Anabaptist understandings of peace as central to intercultural ministry.
