Credit points: 6 Session: Semester 2 Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day Faculty: Arts and Social Sciences Classes: 2x1hr seminar/wk Assessments: 2x3000wd essay (100%) Description: Peter Berger defined secularisation as "the process whereby sectors of society and culture are removed from the domination of religious institutions and symbols", which does not fit with the non-institutional religious forms that have emerged since the 1960s. Definitions of 'religion', 'religious', 'secular', and 'sacred' are the focus of this unit.
