    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a wonderful course that explores a variety of religious traditions from an open-minded perspective, emphasizing the importance of empathy and a "what if you were in their shoes" mentality when approaching religion. The studies examine all sorts of international religions without overloading students on any one topic, and fosters an interest in learning more about each one. The course texts were concise, approachable, and for the most part in layman's terms, making them readable and informative on a level perfect for introductory students.

    Course highlights:

    I believe on of the highlights was the case study documentary films our class viewed, as they explored unique topics and perspectives regarding religious motifs, and the visual presentation brought the concepts they addressed to life, more than just descriptive words on a page. Dr. Toole engaged us during the films to answer questions and address opinions, acknowledging where they fell short in their information. The open-ended discussions were also incredibly helpful, allowing all viewpoints to be expressed and pondered in a respectful, scholarly environment; no one felt too ashamed to give input from their religious perspective. It was inviting and ultimately enlightening for everyone.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Engage in class! If you never give input, you'll never truly master the concepts studied. Takes notes, but there isn't a need to be overzealous - a lot of natural absorption takes place during the discussions.
