Any 18 credits completed or three credits of 1000 level ENGL (excluding ENGL 1551 and ENGL 1552).


RLCT 2125


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course will approach the study of religion through literature. How does literature inform our understanding of religion, and vice versa? We will ask how modern authors communicate and even challenge religious themes and ideas through literature, and how their works grapple with essential religious questions and issues. Themes and texts may vary from year to year. This course may be credited towards English Studies.
