Religion & Culture

An exciting and diverse array of courses in the Religion and Culture area are available to students. Courses are typically focused on contemporary experiences from a variety of religious viewpoints. A number of courses focus on the intersection of religion and the body, such as religious experiences and teachings about death and dying, health and healing, and gender. Courses on pilgrimage and non-violence teachings are also offered. Geographically focused courses examine Japan's civilization and popular culture; religious traditions in Hamilton; and cults in North America. Other course offerings focus solely on Islam in North America and in the modern world.

Religion, Philosophy & Politics:

Courses in this area explore fundamental questions about ethics, politics, and religion by reading classic and contemporary works of philosophy, theology, literature, critical theory, and popular culture from across the Western tradition. We study religious thought and other textual traditions from the times of ancient Greece, medieval Christianity, and the modern West. Our courses complement study in Philosophy, Political Science, and English and Cultural Studies.
