This ONLINE course will act as an overview of the many ways that religious and spiritual beliefs can and do influence our daily lives, including an individual's attitudes, motivations, cognitions, emotions, and behaviors (and vice versa). We will explore concepts of religion and various religious perspectives as they relate to psychology, and the social and cultural implications of religion. The focus of this course will not be on any religious affiliation in particular, but instead on how people view religion and spirituality and use those beliefs in both positive and negative ways. After this course, hopefully students will think more critically about how religious and spiritual beliefs influence actions in their everyday lives.This course emphasizes student synthesis and critical thinking with practical and theoretical concepts of religion, and will be reinforced by a one-week trip to Vatican City and Rome, Italy over Spring break in which students will be immersed in various religious and ideological experiences.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of apartment accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must complete an application by November 8, 2019 https://fayette.psu.edu/rome.
