Section Information for Fall 2017
This course will serve as a basic introduction to the academic study of religion. While not to be confused with a general survey course of religions-of-the-world or “world religions,” this course will draw upon diverse examples of different religious expressions and movements from across the global. However, the main purpose is to introduce you to various theories, methods or approaches, key concepts and terms, taxonomies or typologies (e.g., types or categories of religions), and influential moments and thinkers within the field of religious studies that have probably affected what and how you think about religion whether you are aware of it or not.
Note: This section of RELI 100 is not a survey course of different religions but rather an introductory course to the field of religious studies. Students interested in learning explicitly about a variety of religions should consider another section of this course.
Satisfies the general education requirement in global understanding.
