This minor will enable students to understand how psychological development, within specific social, familial, and religious contexts, can deeply influence a person’s capacity for faithful relationships with self, with others, and with God. Integral to this study is the investigation of the ways in which crucial developmental factors can be supported, or hindered, by varying forms of religious experience.
