Religious Studies Immersion

Brian Schroeder, Professor of Philosophy; Immersion Coordinator

LBR 06-3110


Religion plays a major role in human affairs. To understand more fully the nature of the relationship between society and the individual, it is essential to have some understanding of religion. The religious studies immersion engages students in the study of religion from the perspective of major Western and non-Western traditions through courses in disciplines such as anthropology, history, literature, philosophy, and psychology.

Choose three of the following:*
   ANTH-245    Ritual and Performance
   ANTH-275    Global Islam
   ANTH-365    Culture and Politics in the Middle East
   ENGL-307    Mythology and Literature
   FNRT-209    Medieval & Renaissance Music
   HIST-369    Histories of Christianity
   PHIL-301    Philosophy of Religion
   PHIL-311    East Asian Philosophy
   PHIL-409    Existentialism
   PHIL-410    Medieval Philosophy
   PHIL-412    Nineteenth-Century Philosophy
   PSYC-238    Psychology of Religion

* To complete the immersion, students must select three courses from at least two distinct disciplines (e.g., anthropology, English, history, philosophy, or psychology). Philosophy majors must take two courses in disciplines other than philosophy. The Great Thinkers courses (offered within the philosophy department) will be considered on an individual basis, subject to approval by the religious studies immersion coordinator.
