MA students of Intercultural Communication can include this course in their Specialization Studies.
The course is also available for students of Master's Degree Program in Cultural Policy (5 seats).

80% attendance requirement is applied to all courses of the Department of Communication. Please read the principles concerning attendance and the completion of courses at https://www.jyu.fi/hum/laitokset/viesti/en/studies/guidelines/attendance.


This class is an examination of the relationship between communication and the presence or lack of religion. NO religion or lack of religion will be favored over another in this class. This is not a place for proselytizing or chastising religion, but a place to discuss and examine the relationship between communication and religion/lack of religion. To facilitate this analysis we will study various communication contexts and how the presence or lack of religion influences these contexts.


On completion of this course, students will be able to:

1. Understand the relationship between religion and communication.

2. Critically discuss how religion influences culture.

3. Evaluate the role of religion in media, health care, interpersonal relations, organizational situations, and other contexts.

4. Critically digest media discussing religion.


The class includes lectures, reading assignments, and a final paper.

The final paper can be a review of literature, an application of religion in communication, a historical analysis of religion and communication, or some other applicaiton of religion and communication. The key is that you must apply religion and communication together in a theoretical argument. This paper must be:

1. Written in APA style (6th edition).

2. Must be between 8-10 pages in length not including references and title page. The paper does not need to have an abstract.

3. You must work with a partner on this paper. You cannot work alone on this paper.

4. You must have your topic approved by the Professor.

5. The Paper due date is 31-March by 1700 Finnish time via e-mail to: stephen.m.croucher@jyu.fi.

6. The assignment is worth 200 points. 35 points for writing and APA; 10 points for structure, 55 for definition of theory based on literature, 100 points based on discussion of the status of the literature.
