The Religious Studies minor is an independent minor at Binghamton University. Faculty across Harpur College teach courses that count toward the minor.

The academic study of religion is a multidisciplinary field, which draws on the varied disciplines of the human, social, and biological sciences. Harpur College now offers a wide range of courses that allow students to learn about different religious traditions through these many methodologies. The minor incorporates current Harpur courses into a focused curriculum.

Binghamton University's religious studies program focuses on the academic study of religion as a significant social force in all cultures and in all ages. ... BU is one of the few SUNY schools that offer a religious studies minor that students can combine with a major in another academic area, said Friedman, who was instrumental in bringing the program to the campus.
