This course is part of the Certificate of Christian Studies and is offered by the Tri-Colleges (Assumption University, Canterbury College and Iona College).
This course discusses the complex and sometimes contentious relationship between religious belief and modern science. After examining some of the larger historical and conceptual issues surrounding the modern debate between religion and science, the course then surveys key themes such as evolution and cosmology to distinguish the many ways in which religion and science collide, coexist, and influence each other. The scientific material is nontechnical and intended for a broad audience.
In order to successfully complete the course, learners must attend class and receive a grade of 65% or higher on a short reflection assignment.
