Introduction to Theology: The Craft of Theological Thought (TH 201)
What is God-talk and how do we do it? This course explores the ways that thinkers in the Judaeo-Christian traditions have contemplated the nature of God, what it means to be created by God, how human action hinders and helps the relationship to God, and what it means to be reconciled. This course emphasizes theology as something that is done, not just something we read.

Humanity and Divinity (PL 230)
This course explores human nature, and the potential relationship between humans and God. We will explore a multitude of questions related to the good life such as: What does it mean to be a person? Is there a God? How might we know if there is a God? What is the relationship between knowledge and faith?
