Religion and Society is an interdisciplinary program that provides the opportunity to study the pervasive role of religion in contemporary society, especially in U.S. national politics, international relations, economic development, and popular culture-and in most facets of social change broadly conceived. Course requirements aim to provide students with (1) an understanding of several major religious traditions on their own terms; (2) perspectives on the social and cultural roles played by religion in various periods and places, not the least of which is the contemporary world; and (3) comparative analysis of religion’s influence on particular aspects of human cultures, such as politics, violence, and group identity. The program is open to any SU student, and may be especially useful to students interested in pursuing careers in journalism, international relations, law, government, or foreign service.
