    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me everything I needed to know about religion. For me, I unfortunately had some stereotypical ideas about religions such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. However, after I completed this course, all previous unsupported ideas I had about any religion were diminished. It further encouraged me to question other ideas I had that didn't seem to have evidence behind it's accusations.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned everything from the history of the first religions, all the way to religions that are merely a couple of hundred years old. In this course you get a good feel of every religion you may have a question about without going to deep details on every aspect of every religion. The most time was spent on, of course, the 3 major religions of today: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. However, we did spent a fair amount of time on smaller religions such as Sikhism and Confucianism.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time on the essays. There is no tests in this course so the only way the professor judges your understanding is by your essays. So make sure you take the time to plan out and organize your essay in order to show the professor you have full understanding of the class content.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. It goes in-depth into a few different religions and the sociological aspects as well as historical implications. It discusses many world religions that a lot of people may not have a very thorough understanding of and gives you an explanation as well as a thorough description of what makes these religions so important to some people.It also goes into the different perspectives of each religion such as their materialist, functional, and beliefs. It also helps you understand the different distinctions between the sacred realities of each religion. All in all an extremely informative and interesting course.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained an extremely thorough understanding of what makes each religion unique and what aspects and Symbology that they have in common. I gained an understanding of the origin and religious implications of each religion as well. It gave me a better understanding of both the positive and negative aspects of organized religion. A very interesting and informative class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need an open and inquisitive mind. You should also try to keep thorough and complete notes because they will help you to differentiate between the religions. It is a good course to take for a humanities requirement and if you plan on pursuing a degree in Psychology because it goes into detail about why the people that follow these religions believe as they do.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives people a more open mindset in regards to diversifying the community and becoming aware of those around you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of different things about all of the main religions found around the world, particularly the in depth practices of Hinduism. We also learned and covered Judaism, Christianity, islam, indigenous religions of South America and south Africa, Buddhism, and shintoism.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book before going to class and you really won't struggle with the material at all. I'd also recommend going to teachers office hours if you need help with essays or assignments.
