SOC 250 - Sociology of Religion

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
This course examines religion as a social institution that oppresses, liberates, mitigates social change, and intersects with other social institutions. In this course, we examine behavior, belonging and belief, as well as the relationships and processes that sustain religious systems of meaning. Among other things, we discuss atheism, cults, reenchantment, fundamentalism, new religious movements, capitalism, and the impact of religion on other social categories such as gender, sexuality, and ethnicity.

Prerequisite: SOC 111 .
Note: Not offered every year.
