04- 28- 2009

Spartanburg, S.C. - Beginning in fall 2009, the Department of History, Political Science, Philosophy and American Studies at the University of South Carolina Upstate will offer a minor in religion. 

“The academic and impartial study of world religions and religious ideas, values and institutions is especially important for the U.S., which is the most religiously-diverse nation on earth,” said Dr. David Damrel, assistant professor of religion at USC Upstate. “The religion minor can be an important and practical concentration for students majoring in the liberal arts, business, education, and nursing, or who are interested in law, medicine or graduate studies.”
