REL 241 - Religion, Law, and Politics

4 credits (Spring)
Focusing on the “religion clauses” of the U.S. Constitution, we study the history out of which the clauses emerged and the Supreme Court cases that have shaped their meaning. We engage questions about who can exercise their religion freely and to what extent can the state support religious institutions. We explore how these questions intersect with debates over LGBTQ rights, reproductive health, and Native American Land claims, among others.

Prerequisite: REL 101 , REL 102 REL 103 REL 104 , or second-year standing.
Note: Not offered every year.
