    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Tranvik is a great professor! I'm a student of color and I was quite hesitant on taking the class, but being it was required, I had no choice otherwise. Even so, Dr. Tranvik was able to reassure me and along with other non-Christian students that we didn't have to be Christian to be able to pass the class. He actually made it enjoyable for us to learn and I learned a lot more of this religion than what I thought and knew of it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that we could question the bible and its context, I use to think that whoever read the bible strictly followed it without questioning it. Learning about Martin Luther's story proved me otherwise. I also learned of the Muslim religion and sheepishly am ashamed of what I first thought of them. I learned that it takes the step to learning about the religion to understanding their religious practices, traditions, and religious beliefs. The highlights of this course were the fact that Dr. Tranvik assigned field trips for us to visit synagogues and temples to further learn about the culture/religion of the subject.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assigned pages that your professors give out to you because it will help a lot with the homework assignments, be attentive and take good notes: Cornell notes are highly preferable, but any other method would be okay if is well noted. Ask questions when you have any questions or concerns and be open, this is a learning experience to dive into understanding someone else's culture. Be as descriptive and detailed as possible with the essay questions and homework assignments.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was an easy class. It is required by the college to take. I, myself, am not a religious person. The professor made it easy for everyone to understand and grasp basic concepts of the larger religions. We looked at Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism. Overall it was easy yet informative.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about the religions around the world and why people decide to follow them as they do. The class doesn't push religion on you and that you need to have it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go to class. Pay attention to the professor. Even though it is easy, there are two presentations you need to do and its best to have the knowledge the professor gives you so you can pass it with flying colors
