REL 6150 - Survey of Religions of the World

A survey of ten major religious traditions; each tradition will be studied through its historical development, its unified system (symbols, beliefs, and rituals), and dynamics (actual practices such as annual celebrations, rites of passage). While learning the content of individual traditions and exploring the comparative questions between/among traditions, students will focus on the issues of teaching about religion generally and the problematics of presenting individual traditions. This course will balance content of religious traditions and pedagogical techniques as a way of preparing students to teach basic courses in religion.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to Graduate students only.
