GEN 345 - Core II: Visions of the Afterlife

Semester Hours: 3
This course will explore some of the diverse ways people have responded to the mystery of what becomes of human beings after they die. Focused attention will be given to various conceptions of life after death in different traditions and cultures. Drawing from a variety of fields such as anthropology, history, psychology, religion and science, the course will also examine explanations for the pervasiveness of the belief in life after death and different perspectives on the possibility of life after death. Students will be invited to consider how these various perspectives inform their own understanding of what, if anything, comes after their life here on earth.

Pre-requisites: GEN 130 - Core I: Foundations of Critical Thinking , sophomore standing or above, and GEN 112 - Composition II: Argumentation and Research .
