The Religion Major or Minor with a Catholic Studies Emphasis

At Hofstra, majoring or minoring in Religion is very flexible. You can tailor your study to focus on a vocational area or a particular tradition, or you can just choose courses that expose you to a diversity of faiths.

If you choose to major or minor in Religion with an emphasis in Catholic Studies, you can take courses in Religion, Jewish Studies, or other departments. The main Religion courses that include Catholic Studies themes are listed below. Many other courses in the department and across the university complement these offerings. Please consult Dr. Julie Byrne, Hartman Chair of Catholic Studies, for more information.
