ANT 330 Anthropology of Religion

Cultural anthropology is one of the four major subdisciplines that examine the non-biological behaviors that allow humans to adapt to their living conditions. Religion is among those cultural universals that permeates all aspects of humanity and is an extremely powerful force directing human behavior. Allowing for considerable variability within the confines of “religion,” this course is an intellectual adventure into exploring the relationship between being human and participation in religious experience. Students are required to become active participants in the learning process and as a scholar, are obliged to share and communicate their ideas to classmates and colleagues. Prerequisite: ANT 220  or permission of instructor.

3 credit hours
