RLST 267- L01: Religion in Canada: Diversity, Divinities, and Debates - Dr. Bryan Hillis
& Connor Thompson

When it comes to Canada, what do the First World War, our current system of education, debates over how one may be dressed when accessing public services, and 20th century labour disturbances have in common? None of it can be understood without taking into account the role religion played. Through guest speakers, seminar-style interaction, films, and lectures, this course will offer students an in-depth look at how religion has shaped Canada, and how Canada has shaped religion. Students in this course will better appreciate the country’s religious diversity and will be able to situate current debates involving religion within Canada’s past.

(Prerequisite: Completion of 12 credit hours or RLST 100. ***Note: Formerly number RLST 250. Students may not receive credit for both RLST 267 and RLST 250.)
