    INTL 1200 Certificate in Religion & Human Rights

    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 was born in response to the genocide of over six million Jews in Nazi Germany. And yet, its values were conceived hundreds of years prior by religious communities that, in their own geographic and cultural contexts, advocated for protections for human’s inalienable rights.

    INTL 1201 Foundations of Human Rights

    What are the legal foundations for religion and human rights? What is the relationship between religion in human rights and human rights in religion? How does the United Nations' secular approach differ from that of human-rights commitments made by Islamic nations?

    INTL 1202 Freedom of Religion

    Freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) is widely recognized by scholars, policymakers and practitioners of human rights as the oldest of the universal human rights recognized under international law. Indeed, FoRB is frequently referred to as the “grandparent” of human rights and as “the first freedom” of international human rights. At the same time, the denial of the human right to freedom of religion or belief is a leading cause of repression, division and conflict across the globe. More than three-quarters of the world’s population lives in countries with high levels of government restrictions on religion. Studies show that government restrictions on religion correspond with increases in social hostilities and violence.

    INTL 1203 Freedom for Religion

    In this course on freedom for religion, we will explore the wide range of arguments used to shield religion from the state. For instance, the concept of separating the church and state is mentioned over 100 times in the Christian Bible. Although it has religious origins, the idea of legal separation has become a secular principle designed to restrain the state's power and protect religion from government overreach. Indigenous people have made similar legal arguments when seeking freedom for their religion from colonial laws and culture. Throughout the globe, additional freedom for religion arguments are made: freedom for religion from critique/offense, as seen in blasphemy and defamation laws, and the freedom for religion from adherents changing or leaving their religion, known as apostasy laws. In this course, we will examine which of these arguments are and are not protected by human rights law and why.

    INTL 1204 Freedom from Religion

    When might it be necessary to legally ensure the freedom from government endorsement, enforcement, or involvement with religion? Why do state bans on proselytizing violate a person's human rights? What is the difference between fear of coercion and the right to teach about and disseminate materials about one's religion? When is it necessary to regulate religiously-motivated actions that may cause harm to self or others or infringe upon the rights of protected classes of people?

    INTL 1205 Freedom within Religion

    Religious literacy educators emphasize religions' internal diversity. Human rights educators stress the importance of having freedom within religion––the liberty for dissenters, women, and children to practice self-determination within their traditions. Why is this so important? What's a stake for whom? What role should human rights play, if any, with the reform or preservation of religious laws within religious communities?

    POLI 120 Utah Case Studies in Civil Dialogue

    American society is more divided than ever. As young people grow up in this culture of contempt, they are learning to value only those who think like them while seeing everyone else as the enemy. This is a real threat to human dignity and places our country in peril. To keep our American republic, the Constitution requires citizens to live productively with one another. Civil dialogue is a competency of American citizenship that requires developing. You can support your students as they develop this competency. Civil Dialogue can help us live well, even with deep differences. Civil dialogue is not debate. It is a process of seeking understanding by communicating with respect and listening with empathy.
