Cynthia M. Baker

Associate Professor of Religious Studies
Associate Professor of Religious Studies Cynthia Baker teaches CMRE 235 "Introduction to the Ancient Hebrew Bible" in Pettigrew 200. This course is part of the Purposeful Work Infusion Project which exposes Bates students to worlds of work, questions of identity and purpose, and reflection on decision-making about work through curricular and co-curricular infusions. Curricular infusions occur in ìPurposeful Work Infusion courses,î which bridge the gap between course content and ìworkî (broadly defined).
