RTS338: Sexual Ethics

3 Credit(s)
Fulfills Core Requirement in Religious and Theological Studies.
While undoubtedly an important topic, few spaces exist for college students to engage in a mature conversation about their sexual lives and the struggles and pressures that confront the millennial generation.  This course is designed to fill that gap, to help students think critically about such topics as sexual practices, campus pressures, gender expectations, and a sex-infused culture that plays an oversized part in the construction of sexual desire and behavior.  With the Christian tradition as a leading conversation partner, the class will utilize readings from a variety of sources as we work towards describing what makes sex good, pleasurable and just.  Recognizing that contemporary hookup culture adheres to few rules, our ultimate goal will be to establish ethical norms for sexual relationships that encourage responsible and satisfying choices.
Prerequisite(s): RTS 225
