This Core Humanities course examines the relationships between religion and human beliefs, practices, & culture; surveys debates in the history of the field, e.g., definition of religion, insider/outsider problem, & theories about the origins and function of religion. An ideal intro to the study of religion as carried out in a public university.
As the Honors/Core Humanities introduction to the study of religion, REL 105 examines the material in greater detail than does REL 100, and in a smaller class setting. A minimum 3.3 GPA is required to register. HU INB
