Seeking Religious Literacy – a self-paced course for individuals and groups who yearn to be pleasantly surprised and informed about religious worldviews all around us – is now open for registration! In this public, non-credit bearing course, faculty in their field curate the lectures and SU students and alumni present them - The course is open to all!
This course seeks religious literacy as an essential good in the world today. In this self-paced course we learn how religion involves a human journey for meaning across religious worldviews, and takes up the essential issues of our day, including both respect for life around us and our moral response to others. The course feels like a journey or pilgrimage.
The modules guide the learner through a path of accessible multi-media content, including lectures, podcasts, and first-hand accounts from individuals around the world.
The course's colorful design covers the arc of a 24-hour-period, from twilight to twilight, and concludes with a student assessment of their journey.
The course is recommended for individuals or communities, and is constructed so that group learning can be facilitated by a member who coordinates discussion.
As in the past, so also in our day, with the wisdom and humanity of our religious traditions, we want to be a stimulus for a renewed educational activity that can advance universal fraternity in our world.Pope Francis at the 2021 Global Compact on Education
