The human experience and expression of what it means to be religious.
The department of Religious Studies continues to expand course offerings in the 200 introductory area and the 400 advanced area to provide sufficient courses from which Religious Studies majors may select to meet their major requirements in a timely fashion. This 200 level course also provides an additional course for non-majors to apply as a cognate or for Humanities AIU credit.
This course is an introductory overview of human religiosity as a part of universal human experience. It explores the various ways in which people and societies construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct religious ideas and perspectives. It builds on the 100 level RELG courses, situating the evolving, diverging, and converging human expressions of religiosity and non-religiosity in the larger environment of human construction of meaning, significance, and reality. It looks at ways of being religious, non-religious, anti-religious, and multiple expressions of these. The course approaches this examination through the lens of multiple methodologies utilized in the academic study of this wide-ranging and multifaceted aspect of our shared humanity, explicitly looking at the lenses of selected methodologies as well as through them.
