    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the course! There was so much I learned and Brother Gaskill is the bomb! It was a challenging class and there was quite a lot of work especially for a 3 credit class but I got an A with simply doing the work and studying.

    Course highlights:

    You learn in depth about 10 different religions and a couple minor religions just as a side effect.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study. Keep caught up on homework.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Though many of the religions we learned about contrasted my spiritual beliefs and taught contradicting doctrines, they all had the same goal: be kind, be good, be true. I was able to take a little from each religious lifestyle and apply it. And, I’m a better person for it.

    Course highlights:

    Gained a new understanding about other forms of religion such as Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Daoism, Confucianism, and Shintoism

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study in a group before the tests and memorize the powerpoints through your notes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    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.

    Course highlights:

    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.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    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.
