New Religion Assignments

This is a combination of several assignments including an analytical paper in which students are asked to compare and contrast arguments from readings. Additionally a separate assignment revolves around visiting a Special Collections whereby students will identify an item relating to New Thought or New Age, examine it both physically and materially and write a short descriptive paper. The second section of this assignment requires that the student travel to a worship service and observe the service and it’s characteristics such as demographics, topics covered, and general ambience. The final assignment addressed in this course is about a particular new religion and how the media has covered it.
