Carroll University seeks to hire an Adjunct Instructor of Religious Studies for the

Spring 2022 Semester

Course: REL 208: Introduction to Buddhism (4cr)

Time/Days: Entirely online course

This course provides an introduction to the academic study of Buddhism and its manifestations in different areas of the world. It will survey the historical development of Buddhism and its core religious and philosophical principles - its theory of liberation, cosmology and ethics. Building on these foundations, the course will present significant case studies of contemporary Buddhism drawn from around the world (e.g.: Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, United States). Through the analysis of these selected cases, students will have an opportunity to study how different Buddhist traditions have adapted and reacted to a modern and globalized world. By investigating these attempts at survival and promotion in the contemporary global context, students will explore the challenges of perpetuating tradition and orthodoxy, and the emerging commercialization of Buddhism in the name of its survival as a significant world religion.

Qualifications: Graduate degree in discipline; official transcripts due upon hire.

The College: The College of Arts and Sciences offers undergraduate and graduate programs through seven departments - Communication and Sociology; Computational and Physical Sciences; English, Modern Languages and Philosophy; History, Political Sciences and Religious Studies; Life Sciences; and Visual and Performing Arts.
