Myth, Self, and Religion (3 MSU Honors Credits)
This course will enable students to explore the mythic quest for meaning, identity, value, and transcendence as seen through religious biography and literary narrative. They will study myth in relation to religious symbols and life-cycle rituals. The course will emphasize a cross-cultural perspective on religious world views and the interpretation of myth as sacred narrative.
