CRI Summer Course

The Castle Rock Institute summer program offers one course during each session. Intended for sophomores and juniors in college, this 300-level course is more advanced than most introductory ("101") college courses, but since it does not have formal prerequisites, it is also appropriate for students with no experience in Religious Studies or Anthropology.

Listed here is a brief course description and a link to a sample syllabus (in .pdf format).

Anthropology of Religion
This course surveys important anthropological approaches to the study of religion. It gathers and compares different methods, theories and data that anthropologists have employed to describe and understand the "lived dimension" of religions around the world. It seeks to introduce students to the central categories and assumptions Anthropology brings to studying religion. (sample syllabus)

During the Australia expedition this course pays particular attention to indigenous Australian Aboriginal traditions.
