CNST 30221 - Section 01: Religion, Development, & Democ (CRN 20241)
Long Title: Religion, Development, and Democracy in Africa

Course Description:
The impact of religion on social and political change and the impact of social and political change on the influence of religion are immensely important topics. While many have claimed that religious faith communities essentially impede "human progress," others have argued that "human progress" is impossible to explain without some reference to such faith communities. In this course, we will take a critical look at religion, particularly Christianity and Islam, and examine two major questions: (1) What effects, if any, do religious beliefs and institutions have on human development and the prospects for and the quality of democracy? (2) What effects, if any, do human development and democratization have on the relevance of religious beliefs and the influence of religious institutions? Students will take an active role in leading in-class discussions, write several short essays and one longer essay on a topic of their choice.
