Ph.D Minor

Ph.D Minor

Students interested in a doctoral minor in Religious Studies meet with the PhD Minor Advisor, Professor Jordan Rosenblum, jrosenblum@wisc.edu, to plan their course. Minors are expected to achieve a grade of B or better in four Religious Studies Program courses totaling at least ten credits at the 300 level or above. One of these four courses must deal with approaches to Religion; RELIG ST 600 Religion in Critical Perspective is strongly recommended. In order to receive course credit toward the minor, students must register for crosslisted courses from within Religious Studies rather than from within any crosslisting department. The doctoral minor planning form and certification form, along with a list of courses satisfying the approaches requirement, is below.

The Ph.D. Minor Requirements
-Four courses at the 300-level or above, totaling at least 10 credits
-One of these four courses taken in "Approaches to Religion" (see below)
-Registration for these courses (especially those that are cross-listed with other academic units) from within Religious Studies.
-A grade of B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better in each course

Upon completing their coursework, students must complete the Ph.D. Minor Certification Form PDF format to confirm that the minor requirements are satisfied.
