PSC 401 - Religion, Conflict, and Inter-religious Peacebuilding


(5-0-5)
Prerequisites: HIS 102 PSC 201 
This interdisciplinary course will look at religion in general, and the paradoxical and often self-contradictory role of religion in contributing both to violence and peace in the world.  It will introduce students to a methodologies and practical frameworks for understanding various “fault lines” of potential conflict or peace across and within traditions.  Students will also be able to apply this understanding to contemporary global conflicts as well as inter-personal relationships with people of differing religious traditions.  The course will also focus on the positive, peace-building efforts of inter-faith practitioners around the world that are often unknown or overlooked in general society.
