This course is a cross-cultural survey of religious beliefs and practices. The course will examine a broad range of religious activities, rituals, and behaviors from an anthropological perspective. Students will apply this perspective in independent analyses of religious rituals in a community or culture other than that with which they are familiar. The course is comparative in nature and will focus on the practice of religious activities rather than specific religious dogma. This course meets General Education Core Goals 9: Behavioral & Social Sciences and 12: Global Perspectives & Diversity.
