MOOC: The Science of Religion

We are showing lectures from the University of British Columbia’s MOOC: The Science of Religion

What is religion? Are we wired to believe? Does science have the answers? Join us on a journey to the origins of religion and spirituality.

The course is based on the idea that religion is a naturalistic phenomenon — meaning it can be studied and better understood using the tools of science. Religious belief and practice emerge naturally from the structure of human psychology, and have an important impact on the structure of societies, the way groups relate to each other, and the ability of human beings to cooperate effectively.

Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are free courses offered by universities and other post-secondary institutions, and open to anyone. All you need is access to the Internet and time to complete them! No previous MOOC experience required.

Registration opens March 1st, and you can register by clicking "Register" above, or at 604-929-3727 ext.8166.
