The Center aims to foster the study of religion, broadly defined, across disciplines and to facilitate intellectual exchange among students and faculty in the humanities and social sciences. The sponsorship of new undergraduate courses is part of our commitment to scholarly research and teaching that examines religion theoretically, comparatively, and empirically in its diverse historical and contemporary manifestations. Although Freshman Seminars are given priority for funding, regular tenured and tenure-track faculty may also propose advanced undergraduate courses. Any number of critical approaches to the study of religion may be used in the course, and the topic can be defined as a specific tradition or more broadly in terms of the interaction between religion and other aspects of culture.

This year, the Center is sponsoring one advanced undergraduate course:
