    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is really eye opening, ti the beliefs of so many other people in our world. Sometimes it can be hard to understand other's perspectives when you attend a religious school, but this helped me to see a lot more of the world around me. Dr. Reed is also a fantastic teacher, who will really engage you in the material, and you will have a lot of fun with the things you're learning.

    Course highlights:

    I think my favorite thing about this course was learning about some of the more obscure religions, just because I would never know anything about them otherwise. On the first day Dr. Reed had us watch a video of a colony who tower jump as a form of religion. It was really interesting because it made us really change our perspective about what religion is from the very beginning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to do the readings, and make sure that you go to class every day. It's not a hard class if you attend lecture and participate.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He's an incredible teacher, who has great knowledge about religions. His lectures are interesting, he makes you read a "devotional" every day to understand the religious books or beliefs better. We watched some documentaries that also increased our learning experience.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. We learned about traditions, the prophets, books and other basics of each religion. And we compared them to the LDS faith.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read before class, and take notes of what he goes over more in class.
