ECO 360 Economics and Religion

3 Credit(s) CS
This course employs economic theory and methods to study religious beliefs, behavior, and institutions. By combining economic concepts and real-world data, we will study the social, political, and economic correlates of religion. Like other socio-scientific approaches to the study of religion, the economic study of religion does not seek to evaluate the truth of religious claims, nor does it promote one religion over another. Three lecture hours per week. Prerequisite: ECO202 or permission of department chairperson.
