Enterprise Hall 276
Section Information for Spring 2015
The European Age of Exploration in the 1500s brought about the first global encounters between previously unknown peoples in the world and provoked a crisis in understanding “religion.” As a result various definitions, theories, and ways of studying religion began to emerge which continue to shape our understanding of religion and culture in our contemporary, globalized world. This course explores a variety of religious expressions and movements, and examines influential moments and thinkers in the field of religious studies. Students will be introduced to key ideas, theories, and terms concerning religion.
Satisfies the general education requirement in global understanding.
