RTS386: New Religious Movements and Alternative Spiritualties

3 Credit(s)
Fulfills Core Requirement in Religious and Theological Studies
This course will explore the “shift to self” as expounded by many theorists of secularization and sacralization and will examine non-traditional religions in the 21st century.  It will look at the role of the period of the 1960s in fostering a new approach to believe, based not on an appeal to authority, but an appeal to the independent self and the centrality of the individual.  It will look at the rise of new religious movements, trace their spiritual roots and examine their core beliefs and philosophies.
Prerequisite(s): RTS 225  
Theme: Building Global Awareness
