RELI 1002 Syllabus Introduction to the Religions of India, China, and Japan Fall 2009 Holly A. Jordan MWF 8:00-8:50 AM, 72-426, JRNL 501 [email protected] MWF 9:05-9:55 AM, 92-427, JRNL 501 Office:  Peabody Room 22 Office Hours:  TTh 11-12, and by appt. Course Description: University of Georgia Bulletin Information: The religions of India, China, and Japan, such as Hinduism,  Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, and Shinto. This course will focus primarily on seven major Eastern religions in this order:  Hinduism, Sikhism,  Jainism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism, and Shinto.  More time will be spent on Hinduism and  Buddhism, but all seven will be given as much time as possible.  Comparative study of these religions  will be a crucial part of the overall makeup of this course.  Related religions of the East may also be  discussed. Texts for the Course: There is one required text for this course:  World Religions:  Eastern Traditions by Willard G. Oxtoby  (2 nd  Edition, Paperback, Oxford University Press).  This has been one of the primary textbooks for this  course for a number of years, so finding a used copy shouldn’t be an issue.  In addition to this texts,  students will be asked to read texts posted on WebCT.  Lectures will come primarily from the textbook,  but reading the textbook alone will not ensure an A in this course. Course Guidelines and Rules of Conduct: At all times, students are to conduct themselves as the adults that they are.  The study of religion is a  fascinating process, but this study is only an enjoyable experience if the entire class treats both the  material and their peers with respect.  Religious tolerance is expected from each student.  Students will  not be expected to discuss their personal religious beliefs, but if a student feels that such discussion would  be beneficial to help other students understand a facet of a religion, the class will treat that student with  respect.  If any student is disrespectful towards another student or towards a religion, they will be asked  to leave class for that day.  Ultimately, it is my hope that each student will come away from this class

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
