When and why do we see cultural differences? Contents of this course have direct application to a number of related disciplines, such as: legal studies, teaching, marketing, business administration, biology, English literature, politics, and criminal justice.

Religion and American Politics examines the unique role of religion in American public life, the legal-constitutional issues that arise, its effect on voting behavior, and future developments arising from the rise of Evangelicals, decline of Main Line Churches, and the transformation of the Catholic Church caused by the rise of the Hispanics.
