SOC 295-02 - Special Topic: Sociology of Religion

4 credits (Spring)
This course is designed to give you an overview of the sociological study of religion and spirituality in the United States. We will investigate how religions both shape and are shaped by social and cultural contexts. Through readings, discussions, and practice, we will work to understand the diversity of religious life, secularization and its effects on religions, and the ways in which religions intersect with aspects of personal identity such as race, gender, and class.
