    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the way Professor Kleckely teaches the course. He doesn't make you feel bad for being or not being religious, and his lectures make sense. He is very passionate about his class and is funny in the process.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the three largest religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. I learned about their holidays and main events, their rituals and beliefs, and their history. It is very interesting to see these things develop.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The assignments may be unnecessary and long, but they truly do help with the learning. If you miss one, you may not know what is going on in class for the day. When it comes to the assignments give yourself a good hour and a half to read and take notes and so you can really think about what you are reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is super interesting and helpful. I was never bored in that class. There's always time for questions and discussions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in a way that focused around vocation. IT wasn't just learning about their beliefs, but about their experiences, viewpoints, and the history of the religions as well. Also, I had a very diverse class, so I also learned about these religions from students that live through those faiths.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest thing is to pay attention in class and ask questions whenever you need/want to! Russell is great at trying to give his students a true understanding about the material. I also followed along with his power points and used those to study for the tests, and that helped so much!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is required for the Honors Program, but I would recommend avoiding it if you can. Professor requires you to buy many expensive books that you end up not even using. While it could be interesting to learn about religion, this professor tried to make you feel bad if you do not agree with his personal religion.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more basics about the Lutheran religion, as I knew nothing at all coming into the class. We read a few interesting books about religion as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Skim all the readings since the professor usually assigns about 300 pages and then barely talks about it at all.
