Powerful Influences

The science and religious minor, as its name suggests, is designed to give you insight into the two most powerful influences on human society and culture: science and religion. 

These studies give you more than the basic literacy necessary to understand contemporary Western society, enabling you to investigate the variety of ways to think about how these two areas of human activity are related to each other.
