Course Schedule

*Registering for a Synchronous course requires regular attendance at the weekly 3-hour class session (either on-campus or via Zoom).

*A Flex course allows students to complete the entire course remotely (mostly asynchronously), but offers 1 or more in-person opportunities to come together for an exceptional learning experience that substitutes for some of the online work.

*Courses ending in O are completely online.

*A Hybrid means the course is both online and in-person. Some days students are required to be in person and some days they will be required to attend online.

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.

RHB 488H Abrahamic Faiths in Conversation

This course introduces students from a variety of academic, cultural, and religious backgrounds to an analysis of the complex interrelatedness of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. These faiths are treated as living traditions whose historical origins, current interactions, and future development are major factors which will continue to shape the spiritual, cultural, political and economic aspects of human civilization. The course features exploration, analysis, and critical examination of how the Abraham narrative originated, developed throughout history in various religious, cultural, and political contexts, and continues to exert a powerful influence on the self-understanding and the actions of half of the world’s population. *Interreligious elective
