Sexuality, Culture & Religion will examine human sexuality in the context of culture and religion in an academic and objective format. Beyond the boundaries of our dominant culture, there are beliefs, customs and practices that, to us, may appear taboo, offensive or even illegal. Within the culture that spawned those beliefs, customs and practices, they constitute the social norm. Students aspiring to minister in specialized and multicultural settings must be aware of and sensitive to the diversity of human sexuality and experience.
