To the Editor: 


The Department of Religion was excited to see Anna Ferris’s Feb. 6 op-ed, “Princeton should add a religion minor,” which added to our sense of widespread interest among students in a minor in Religion. We would like Anna and The Daily Princetonian’s readers to know that in January we did, indeed, propose a Religion minor to the Academic Planning Group and the Committee on the Course of Study.

We are hoping for approval for those units and from the full faculty in the coming months. Pending approval, we will advertise details and requirements later this spring and schedule an open house for interested students. If everything goes as planned, beginning with members of the Class of 2025 who can complete the requirements during their senior year, all non-Religion majors will soon be eligible to enroll in the long-awaited Religion Minor.

Seth Perry is an Associate Professor and the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Religion.
