Charles PackerAdjunct Professor

Following a brief introduction to academic approaches to the study of religion, students have the opportunity to explore the process of scholarly research and writing in the theological disciplines through presentations and assignments that will orient them to library resources, online references, the most current Modern Language Association style of documentation, and the dangers of plagiarism. Students will also develop and demonstrate through the composition of a brief paper their proficiency with usage of appropriate American English grammar, spelling, flow, logical articulation of ideas, and mechanics.

This is a required course for first-year students.
