    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would 100% recommend taking this class I had a wonderful professor that made me think and question myself as well as my beliefs in a way I never thought I would! The course requires you to think critically and be more open minded. It has honestly changed me as a person, the way I perceive other people, and my outlook on life.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I learned how closely related the different faiths/religions are. As well as the vast denominations that are around and their origins. I also learned not just about religion, but about the human race and how so many of our thoughts and actions come from some religious concept. I think one of the highlights of the course for me was reading Kushners novel "When Bad Things Happen to Good People" that section of the course really made me question my beliefs and everything I had ever been taught about western religion and our idea of God. It was a life changing experience for me.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you plan on taking this course, make sure you don't walk in completely closed-minded or contemptuous. It's a great introduction to religion courses. It is very much a crtitical thinking course you have to actually understand what you're learning in order to do well on the test. As long as you go to class and take notes it shouldn't be too difficult to succeed!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great class that helps you understand the world around you and makes you feel connected to people who was once so different then you.

    Course highlights:

    Stepping outside of the classroom and meeting ministers of different faiths and getting to ask questions helped better understand and appreciate the religion

    Hours per week:

    Advice for students:

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class promotes religious literacy. It goes over the main western and eastern religions in the world. by the end of the course students should have an understanding of the fundamental beliefs off of the religions the class goes over and the effect of religion on society.

    Course highlights:

    learning the differences between Buddhism and Hinduism was a highlight for myself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep track of assignments and do the reading. some assignments are assigned weeks before hand. Don't wait to do those. He may give pop quizzes on the reading and the reading question may be on tests. Taking notes is probably the most important.
