    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

You are also able to learn about less popularized religions such as Universalists and Unitarians.

    The best part of this course was the discussions that were held in class. You are able to develop keen abilities to analyze and religion with an open conversation. Then end project in this class is to experience a different religion, and then write a reflective paper about it. This experience enabled students to develop a larger perspective on religion.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course have a plethora of information throughout the semester. It is essential to review the vocabulary after ever lecture. The new vocabulary directly corresponds with the lesson. Each lesson is a new religion with a new set of vocabulary. It is also important to read every reading that is assigned, because not only will it develop your knowledge of what you are learning, but it will show up on the final exam along with all the vocabulary.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor made this class worth getting up for. He presented the information in a way that was easy to understand and applicable. This class was the right amount of fun and hard. Fun, because it was really interesting. Hard, because it was set up like a history class and you had to work for your grade.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the the other religions and their beliefs. You will learn so much that high school did not teach you. For example, we don't know what the Native Americans believed before people started to evangelize there. They didn't have a written language so they passed everything down by song and dance. I found that super interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes, read the chapters, and study. If you stay on top of things, you'll be fine. If you're struggling, the professor will be more than happy to help you out.
