Introduction to Theology
Designed by Isaac Arten, teaching fellow.
A question based coursed organized around seven big questions that theologians and religious people regularly and seriously ask. The course also explores the results that the various ways theologians and religious people answer these questions have on people’s lives.
Students are introduced to the logic of theology, not just the “right answers” to theological questions. Students are evaluated on their engagement with the big questions, on their ability to use theology’s texts and tools to think about their own core beliefs, and on the skills they develop for recognizing theological proposals and their implications for
common life. See the full syllabus.
