ILS 105 - HUM Exploring Interfaith Leadership and Service

4.00 credits.
(Humanities Core Course)
This survey course introduces the beliefs, values, practices, and historical origins of many of the world’s religions as well as non-religious worldviews, and also grants significant attention to the contemporary environment of religion, including secularization, the relationship between religion and politics, and religious diversity. Students will be challenged to relate religious values to fundamental human dilemmas, including historical dilemmas (e.g., evangelism, colonialism, and religious violence), theological dilemmas (e.g., exclusivism versus religious pluralism), and current issues (e.g., interfaith leadership and service) through case studies and interfaith leadership projects.
