Introduction to the Study of Religions

This course introduces key concepts and theoretical questions in the academic study of religion drawing on methodology and the content of multiple disciplines.

Students will examine the ways in which religious identity interacts with other aspects of identity such as gender, class, ability, race, sexuality, and national origin.
