Los Angeles is a world-class laboratory for the study of religion. This Maymester course will enable a small group of students to have a hands-on experience studying religion under the mentorship of Professor Donald Miller, Director of USC’s Center for Religion and Civic culture.
Students will investigate the diversity of religious groups in three different neighborhoods in Los Angeles. The class will participate in field trips to study Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu congregations – as well as various new religious movements that focus on meditation.
Summer employment option after the course’s conclusion. Students will be invited to apply for summer employment at the Center for Religion and Civic Culture, continuing research on religion in Southern California. Stipends for summer research will be $2500.
