The question driving this thesis is to what extent religious othering is actually experienced compared to the extent to which religious othering is simply perceived. To seek an answer to this question the author chose to analyze the ways in which college students at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte have experienced religious othering or have perceived religious othering. By first examining theoretical philosophies to better understand religious othering and then by using data collected from UNCC students, the author argues how religious othering is often a perception which the perpetrator or victim holds and not an actual experience; this perception of othering is one of the key factors as to why othering persists.
