Sexuality, Culture & Religion will examine human sexuality in the context of culture and religion in an academic and unbiased format. Beyond the boundaries of our dominant culture, there are beliefs, customs and practices that, to us, may appear taboo, offensive or even illegal. Within the culture that spawned those beliefs, customs and practices, they constitute the social norm. Students aspiring to minister in specialized and multicultural settings must be aware of and sensitive to the diversity of human sexuality and experience.
Fulfills: This is a required class for students in PCC, including those in the special military chaplaincy program. For all others, it counts as a course in Area II.
