REL 501.001 Social Theory & Religious Studies: Foundations
This course, required of all incoming MA students, offers an overview of contemporary social theory, produced from across disciplines, on which scholars can draw in their studies of the rhetorics and effects of religion. Useful throughout the degree program, this course will familiarize students with theoretical approaches that they will integrate into their final thesis projects.
Read analysis of some of the ways we see theory everywhere on the course blog.
