I expect honest observance of the Honor Code and BYU’s dress and grooming standards. As a condi- tion of attending BYU, students affirm that they will help others obey the Honor Code. Violations of the Honor Code or dress and grooming standards will have bearing upon your grade and will be reported to the Honor Code office according to University requirements. Please call the Honor Code Office at 422-2847 if you have any questions University Policies I fully support all University Policies including those that relate to sexual harassment, and assistance to students with disabilities. See http://reled.byu.edu/policies.php/ Questions about Religious Education Frequently asked questions about Religious Education can be reviewed at: http://reled.byu.eud/policies.php The mission of Brigham Young University is “to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life.” To this end, BYU seeks to develop students of faith, intellect, and character who have the skills and the desire to continue learning and to serve others throughout their lives. A BYU education should be (1) spiritually strengthening, (2) intellectually enlarging, and (3) character building, leading to (4) lifelong learning and service. The purposes of Religion 341 within the broader goals of a BYU undergraduate education are to strengthen under- standing and testimony of the restoration of the gospel and the Church of Jesus Christ, and to provide opportunity to build personal character by: Reading the text with aid of study guides and writing out short responses Viewing videos, artwork, and photographs dealing with Church history Identifying principles of the gospel exemplified in Church history Addressing student questions that may arise regarding the history of the Church Enrichment assignments that give insight into understanding and applying lessons that can be learned from Church history As a result of this course Individuals who adequately apply themselves will be able to: 1. better govern themselves, and make and keep sacred covenants 2. explain Church history with accurate information, proper interpretation, and appropriate application 3. better serve in the Church and extend the gospel and its blessings to others
