Religious Education Minor


Return to College of Arts and Sciences Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

The Religious Education Minor is designed to prepare theology majors to meet the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s professional requirements for Catholic High School Religion Teacher Certification. The Religious  Education Minor alone does not suffice to meet those professional requirements. Rather, the theology major must be completed in addition to this minor in order to satisfy the necessary educational requirements for archdiocesan certification. The certification standards of other Catholic dioceses are similar to Cincinnati’s, but students are strongly encouraged to check with the diocese where they plan  to teach religion. 

18 total credit hours are required, as follows:


Note(s):


  • A 2.70 minimum cumulative average must be attained in all Theology courses and the courses for the minor.  The Theology Department will also assess a student’s readiness to teach in January of their junior year.
