    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    We must understand that our world is surrounded by religions. We cannot understand religion until we encounter a higher force. This course helped me view the way no one ever did. Take the course! Be adventurous.

    Course highlights:

    Learning the definitions of myth, taboo, mantra and much more. Also, learning all the gods, and or goddesses.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions! They are not stupid!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Everyone can benefit from a general understanding of the people around them, for the purpose of better relating to their life. Religions of the World gives a comfortably general understanding of the world's most prominent religions, and is taught by an excellent professor who wishes the best from his students.

    Course highlights:

    As this course is one semester long and covers almost fifteen religions, it focuses on giving students a brief overview of its content. I most enjoyed the sections on Hinduism and Buddhism. I learned of the friendly and intensely contemplative lifestyles taught by both, as well as the politics of fluctuating philosophies in early C.E. India, and how they in turn affected the world around them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although this may seem cliche, just do the work. If you are asked to read the textbook, make notes, and memorize terms, do so and you will succeed. The people who did not were the people who didn't read the textbook, didn't write good notes, and didn't contemplate the content taught in class.
