Philosophy and Religion Minor

Due to its multi-disciplinary approaches and broad perspectives, a philosophy and religion minor complements any degree offered at Truman.

To understand any human cultural system—whether political, social, scientific, economic, or psychological—you need to learn to recognize and analyze the philosophical and religious beliefs and assumptions grounding that system. Learn to write persuasively, speak and listen in ways that promote understanding, and read productively while balancing openness and critical reflection.

Imagine the impact you can make by conducting research in philosophy and religion studies and submitting a paper to a conference of your peers, such as Truman’s Undergraduate Philosophy and Religion Conference held on campus each year.
