RH 486O Economic Factors: Theology, Philosophy, and the Bible

This course looks at our current economic posture through three interrelated and intersecting lens – theology, philosophy and the Bible. The course examines the relationship between talk about God and the nature and uses of money. The course unearths the relationship between current societal values and assumptions and economic theory. Finally, the course explores economic issues relevant to the study of the Biblical text (especially the New Testament). The hope is that this course empowers participants to better understand the world in which we live and the economic factors in which it is embedded.

LM 446O: Deeply Rooted: Exploring Black Muslim Psychology, Healing, and Activism

The goal of this course is to provide an overview of the emerging field of Black Muslim psychology which is grounded in the experiences, strengths, perspective, racial and sociocultural identity, and spiritual orientation of those who identify as Muslim and of Black/African descent. It acknowledges the rich ethnic, cultural, sectarian, and linguistic diversity of the Black Muslim community; and seeks to understand and enhance protective factors, mitigate systemic stressors and promote psychological well-being within the Black Muslim community. This course will discuss the unique and divergent experiences of Black Muslims and how these experiences influence their mental health, spirituality, and identity development. This material will highlight ways in which the community draws on spiritual and cultural resilience to resist oppression and embrace a positive sense of self, family, and community.
