Foundations of Religious Liberty in America  

Even today, interpretations of the religious freedom principles of the First Amendment remain controversial and challenging. The free exercise of religion raises many controversial questions: How should the limits of the guarantee be determined? Should the freedom of exercising one’s religion allow believers to racially discriminate against others based on one’s religious beliefs? Through discussion and critical reflection on course material, students will develop their own understanding of what the rights to religious freedom entail, where these rights came from, and how these rights are promoted.
