Developing a Religious Studies Minor

An eighteen-month scholar-led seminar that would prepare an interdisciplinary faculty team at California State University, East Bay, to develop a comparative religion minor.

California State University, East Bay has recently been acknowledged as an Hispanic Serving Institution, by which we plan to increase the spectrum of our curriculum in Humanities to better serve a traditionally under-represented population. Our university prides itself on the diversity of its student population, and strives to address issues of diversity and social justice in our teaching, research, and engagements. In recognition of the need to bolster the Humanities, the departments of Philosophy, Ethnic Studies, History, English, Modern Languages & Literatures, and Liberal Studies have recently agreed to come together collectively to form a new School of Global Humanities and Cultural Studies, to foster interdisciplinary collaborations among Humanities scholars and to strengthen each of the disciplines within. As the first major initiative of the school, all of the departments in the school have agreed to support the formation of a program in Comparative Religion.
