RELS 10000 - Religious Thought & Action

Course Credit: 1
RELIGIOUS THOUGHT AND ACTION This course examines what constitutes religion in the United States, a question of significance since the Constitution theoretically protects the free exercise of religion. In order to investigate what qualifies as religion, the semester will begin with an introduction into how Islam, Judaism, and Native American traditions came to be understood as religions. The second half of the course will explore how religion is understood within American law and politics and will question if religious freedom exists in the United States. Annually. [AH, C, R]
