介紹:
Religion is a fundamental aspect of human experience and a distinctive aspect of human culture. Religious Studies as an academic discipline, however, is a relatively new field. Only in the nineteenth century did scholars begin to examine religion from an academic perspective. Religious Studies takes religion primarily as a cultural and social phenomenon and studies it critically as well as sympathetically. Since religion is embodied in different cultures and in various dimensions, including social, experiential, ritual, ethical, narrative, doctrinal and material, Religious Studies must be cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary, utilizing the methods of cultural studies, psychology, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, history and literature. Hence, Religious Studies is an integral part of the academic discipline of human sciences. The programme is designed not to advocate religious belief or any particular religious tradition but to foster a critical and appreciative understanding of the religious dimension of human culture.
宗教是人類文化和經驗中一個基本和獨特的面向。宗教研究卻是一個相對新的學科。學者到十九世紀才開始從學術的角度探討宗教。宗教研究以宗教作為一種文化與社會現象,並以同情和批判的態度加以研究。因為宗教離不開文化、經驗、儀式、倫理、故事、教義與物質,宗教研究必須是跨文化與跨學科的;包括採用文化、心理、社會、哲學、人類學、歷史以至文學的研究方法來研究。因此宗教研究是人文科學一個不可分割的組成部份。宗教研究課程絕非為宣揚任何單一傳統而設,而是培養學生對人類文化中的宗教向度有批判與欣賞的理解。

(c) 學習活動

Tutorial discussion, individual and group research projects and paper writing are major learning activities in Religious Studies. This corresponds to our programme’s emphasis on the learning outcomes of communication and social skills. Inside the classroom, we stress proficiency in oral discussion, clear and critical thinking, and excellence in writing and speaking. Through working on writing assignments, students develop their skills of careful reading and clear writing. This also fosters key research skills including data collection, critical analysis, argumentation and communication. Emphasis on experiential learning is a major feature of our undergraduate programme in Religious Studies. About 45% of the courses have fieldtrip activities in which students can observe and experience a variety of cultures and belief systems that are different from their own.
導修討論、個人與小組研究及論文寫作是宗教研究所採用的主要學習活動形式。這與課程對溝通能力與人際關係技巧的學習果效之注重互相呼應。在課堂裡,我們重視培養討論、批判思考、寫作與說話的能力。透過論文寫作,學生培養精確閱讀與清晰寫作技巧,同時培養資料搜集、批判分析、論證和表達的研究能力。宗教研究本科課程非常注重經驗學習。約 45%科目設有田野考察學習活動,使學生有觀察與體驗不同文化和信仰系統的機會。


(d) 評核

In response to the demand to foster generic skills, our programme has sought to assess by essays, fieldtrip reports, oral presentations and group work. About 85% of our courses use essays or written assignments as their assessment methods. The heavy use of written assignments for assessment corresponds to our programme’s main learning outcomes of communication and presentational skill, excellence in writing and speaking as well as skills of careful reading. In some courses, in addition to reading and writing, fieldtrip reports and participation in fieldtrip is used as part of the assessment method. This corresponds to the emphasis of sympathetic and appreciative understanding of other religious traditions as another important learning outcome of our programme.
