Program Overview

Religion FSPThe Religion Foreign Study Program offers an expanded curriculum in the study of religion through its arrangement with New College of the University of Edinburgh. Also available is the opportunity to study with internationally eminent scholars who teach in this major Scottish university.
 
The program of study in Edinburgh consists of three courses: two to three courses chosen by each student from among those offered by the Faculty of Theology and Program in Religious Studies at New College, given the Dartmouth designations Religion 70, 71 and 72, and Religion 74, taught by the accompanying Dartmouth faculty member and available to (and sometimes required of) all participants. All three courses are graded. With regard to fulfilling the requirements for the major, Religion 70, 71, 72 and 74 count as intermediate courses.

Applications must be submitted by February 1 and applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0.

It is hoped that, beyond their own courses, students will attend a wide variety of public lectures offered at the University of Edinburgh and elsewhere in this historic capital of Scotland, one of the well-known centers for learning in the world.

For Fall Term 2015:  Religion 74:  Ritual in Post-Modern Great Britain
This is a course on ritual. It is designed to expose you to the major theories that seek to define, explain and interpret ritual and to apply those theories to actual rituals in situ. This means we will be reading and discussing intensively in seminar. We will also be taking advantage of the rich multicultural environment of this exciting city to attend various rituals—religious and otherwise. Your papers and presentations will be observations and analyses of two rituals from among the multitude of religious rituals available in Edinburgh and the United Kingdom.

Prerequisite
One course in Religion
