Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course taught me more about the world around me than any other class I have ever taken. The professor helped me see the beauty in so many different religions without taking away from my personal dogma. Especially in today's world, when so many religions are judged by extreme stereotypes, I feel like this class should be required because it truly helps us understand the people we will interact with outside our own cultures.
I learned about numerous religious beliefs and traditions, why those religions practice what they do, and important ideals stressed in each religious culture. Religions that were studied include Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism, Confucianism, Catholicism, and many more. One of the options in the final project was to attend the service of another religion and speak with those in attendance after the service.

Advice for students:
To succeed in this course (not just pass it, but become better through it), you need an open mind and the ability to maintain your faith while learning about the faiths of others. This class isn't meant for someone who is trying to decide which religion is better, it is a class which highlights the importance of each religion and the truths they each possess.
