Module Drop-Ins on Science & Religion
Dear Professor or Student of Science & Religion:
At the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS) we have for some time encouraged faculty in undergraduate institutions, seminaries, and university graduate programs to integrate the dialogue between Science and Religion into existing disciplinary teaching. Students both in the sciences and in Religious Studies or Theology would benefit with this broadening of horizons.
What we offer here is a number of individual Modules on selected topics which could easily be dropped-in an existing syllabus. In a 3-credit science course dealing with physical cosmology or evolutionary biology, for example, the faculty person could simply drop in a module on astrotheology or the evolution controversy. In a university or seminary setting, a professor of Hebrew Scriptures might select one or both of these same two modules as well. Each module is designed for one week’s study out of a quarter or semester, whether the class meets once for three hours or twice for ninety minutes.
To access the modules, visit the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences > Science and Religion Course Modules page.
