The Religious Studies minor engages in a broad and rigorous study of world religions. Courses explore the religious perspectives on and the role of religion in culture, ethics, politics, and human existence. This minor is perfect for students interested in going into seminary or ministry or who just have an interest in a deep understanding of religion. APSU Philosophy and Religion classes are usually small, so students get individual attention from their professors. There is an active Philosophy Club at APSU which holds regular discussions, takes field trips, and has hosted debates with nationally-known speakers on the issue of the existence of God.
