The Theology and Religious Studies (TRS) minor at Catholic University is a wonderful complement to any other degree, providing a solid foundation in Catholic theology and religious studies.
To earn a minor, a student must take TRS 201 as well as five additional TRS courses at any level. This is only two more TRS courses than most Catholic University students are required to take.
TRS minors are eligible for majors- and minors-only seminar-style courses.
TRS minors with qualifying GPAs are also eligible for induction into Theta Alpha Kappa, the National Honor Society for Theology and Religious Studies.
Many of our minors choose to complete the Certificate of Pastoral Ministry.
"I chose to minor in Theology and Religious Studies because I wanted to continue to learn about my Catholic faith and grow deeper in my relationship with God during college. As a Biology major, I was continually in awe of the clear connections between the complexity of the cellular and molecular mechanisms that I was studying in my biology courses and the One who created it all. Now, as medical student and future physician, I am so grateful that I have this strong foundation in my faith, which will help me in my interactions with and service to my patients and in making faith-based, ethical decisions."
