Religious Studies in Atlantic Canada: A State-Of-The-Art Review

By Paul W. R. Bowlby; Tom Faulkner | Go to book overview

The Study of Religion in Canada
Sciences Religieuses au Canada

The Study of Religion in Canada/Sciences Religieuses au Canada is a series of publications planned as “A State-of-the-Art Review” of religious studies in Canada. Each volume in the series covers a particular geographic region. The aim is to present a descriptive and analytical study of courses, programs and research currently being undertaken in the field of religious studies in Canada. The descriptive aspect of the study takes into account the history, nature and rationale of courses and programs, and statistics concerning enrolments and faculty involved. The analytical aspect of the study is concerned with trends and directions of programs, both projected and actual, the relationship of programs and courses to the training and research of faculty, the appeal of courses and program, and the relevance of such courses and programs to larger issues in society.

To date there has been no thorough study of the state of the art of religious studies in Canada. Information concerning religious studies has been confined basically to university and college catalogues and course information in guidance counselling offices in high schools. The descriptive and analytical aspects of this study serve to provide valuable information generally not contained in lists of courses, and will aid students, counsellors and educators in both public and private institutions.

This study, including the research it has involved and the publication of its results, was made possible by a generous grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
