CATALOG COURSE DESCRIPTION:

REL 2300 surveys contemporary religions of the world as both cultural practices and textual or artistic expressions. Major religions will be addressed as the product of causal influences, cultural exchanges and socio-historical contexts. Similarly, religious artifacts will be approached as dynamic texts that express a relationship between interpretive communities and their changing cultural context.

REL 2300, as well as all Humanities courses, approaches the concept of culture as a system of meanings allowing groups and individuals to give significance to the world and mediate their relationships with each other and their known universe. Humanities courses are distinguished from traditional Liberal Arts disciplines through an emphasis on interdisciplinary and comparative cultural contexts. Through these approaches to cultural texts and artifacts, the humanities attempt to investigate, contest, deconstruct, analyze, and synthesize the phenomena of human agency and subjectivity both within and between cultures. By pursuing these forms of inquiry we may better understand our world and our places within it.

Acknowledged Approaches to the Humanities may include:

Understanding and appreciating outstanding cultural expressions of the humanistic tradition.

Interpreting and evaluating works of art, works of music, philosophical arguments, religious beliefs, and/or social theories.

Comparing and contrasting expressions of art, music, literature, philosophy and/or religion.

Identifying causal influences in the chronological development of arts and/or ideas.

Recognizing the relationships between cultural expressions and their contexts.

Note: as a Humanities General Education course it is expected that the students will engage in significant writing to meet the area and course level objectives.

Rationale: World Religions is a course which provides the student with an introduction to the religious life of mankind with an emphasis upon the diversification of this religious life within its cultural context. Such a course is especially important since the college has no Introduction to Religion course.

Intent: The course presumes no previous study in this subject.
