THEO 104 - Introduction to the Study of Religion

3 hours
Like they do about the weather, everybody talks about religion, but few bother to find out what it is. This course explores the meaning, evolution, and practice of religion as a human experience and social institution from a variety of perspectives. In addition to contributions from the history of religions, and both the philosophy and theology of religion, students will also consider the scientific study of religion from the viewpoint of the disciplines of cultural anthropology, archeology, psychology and sociology. Emphasis will be placed on the religious imagination, the use of symbol, myth and ritual in different cultural settings, and the importance of religion in civic discourse and political life.

This course will satisfy the multicultural core requirement.
