Religious Studies in the News

New online course available this summer

REL 381 - Introduction to Judaism

Instructor: Dr. Helene Sinnreich (

Going home for the summer? Traveling somewhere?  You can still take a UT Religious Studies course this summer! 

This summer the Religious Studies Department will be offering an upper division course online.  This is a great opportunity for majors or minors who want to squeeze in one more Religious Studies course before the fall semester begins. 

About the course: Introduction to Judaism will introduce you to a religious group which has survived, flourished and evolved over time and dispersal across the world.  Their core texts have been foundational to Western civilization while their current incarnation continues to impact contemporary politics.

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
