RELS300 - RELIGIOUS STUDIES: MAJOR APPROACHES AND THINKERS

This course, intended primarily for Religious Studies majors and minors, is an introduction to the study of religion as an academic discipline. Although we will consider the historical development and different modern manifestations of some major religious traditions, this course is NOT primarily a survey of world religions. We will spend a significant amount of time on the different approaches to religion, and read major thinkers from eachmethodological approach. An important goal of this course is to cultivate a more sophisticated understanding of how different religions manifest themselvesin the world around us.
