Course Descriptions

ANTH100 explores a wide range of human cultural phenomena and their changes through time, both short- and long-term. We will study a variety of local and transnational communities around the world in order to better understand the cultural consequences and complexities of globalization and related processes, including colonialism, trade, migration, and development. This course is required for Global and International Studies majors, and is open to non-majors. CORE Social and Cultural Knowledge Tier I
THEO107 analyzes religious belief and practice within various religious traditions and areas of the world to contribute to a richer understanding and appreciation of the diversity of religious and religion-like activities throughout the world. It does this both by choosing multiple examples for investigations from various religious traditions (for example, rites of passage in multiple religious traditions or in various geographical areas) and by using and testing various theoretical approaches to better understand practices that may differ from one’s own. CORE Theological-Religious Studies Tier I
