Classes coming in Fall 2016

As you are putting together your fall schedule, please consider the following upper level religion courses being offered this fall:

REL106 Exploring the Bible - Eight sections (M,W, F: 9, 10,11, 12, 1, 2 ; T,Th:9:25; 10:50) - core: Religion

There is a reason it is a best seller -- take this class and find out why for yourself.

REL107 Exploring World Religions - Five sections in a classroom (M,W, F: 1, 2, 12; T,Th:10:50, 12:15, 1:40) and two sections online (some seats reserved for RNBSN students)- core: Religion

REL232 History of Modern Christianity (T,Th: 10:50) with Dr. Slade
Starting in the 17th century, Dr Slade will lead a jaunt through modern history considering how Christianity shaped and was shaped by the modern world. There will be pilgrims, missionaries, Nazis, Communists, revolutionaries, snake handlers, scientists, philosophers, abolitionists, saints, and sinners. This is an important class if you want to think about what it means (and should mean) to be a Christian today.

REL208 Exploring Christian Theology (T,Th: 9:25) with Prof. Karen Liddy
An introduction to central doctrines of the Christian faith that is both respectful of classic theological traditions and open to the new voices and emphases of recent theologies.  A required course for religion majors and one of the best ways to start loving God with your mind at AU.

REL250 Understanding Islam (T, Th: 1:40)  core: Humanities
This is an event of a class. Team taught by Dr. Aune and Dr Ajwa (recently returned from Mecca), learn about the second largest (and most misunderstood) monotheistic religion in the world. 

REL304 Advanced Old Testament (T,Th: 12:15) with Dr. Dickson
Dig deep into key texts from the law, prophets and writings in the book that never gets old! 

REL497 Religion Thesis Seminar (M,W: 3-4:20) with Dr. Aune
Write a 30 page thesis in one semester on a (religious) subject of your choice. This is a required class for religion majors BUT it is also a great elective for everyone else.
