SOC 287 Cults and Culture: Sex, Gender, and Family in Cults/New Religious Movements (3 credits)

This course will look at cults/new religious movements (hereafter referred to as nrms) in relation to the larger culture. We will look at the most recent wave of cults/nrms in our history, dating back to the early 1960s and continuing to the present. We will explore the sociological themes for an introductory sociology course but in the context of cults/nrms. In looking at cults/nrms sociologically, we will spend more time looking at sex, gender, and family patterns. Satisfies the Social Science GER/GEP.
