    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very informational on the doctrine and history of these religions. It isn't about modern events or prejudices, but about the knowledge and understanding of the religion instead of the people.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a ton of history about religions I knew little about. I realized how similar the doctrines were to my own beliefs, which in turn helped me try and view others similarities instead of differences.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading assignments for sure. Write and submit essays early to get them graded and returned so you can fix mistakes before the due date.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me so much about the Jewish and Islamic faiths. I have a much better understanding of what they believe and practice. This has not only made me more sympathetic to these two religions, but other religions in general because I realize now how much false negative information is out there about different religions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned most of all what the different traditions and beliefs are of the two religions. I also learned a ton about the history of the two religions. What happened when and why and specifically there were a lot of applications to my own faith and the things that we all can admire about their beliefs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The absolute biggest thing is the vocabulary. There are a lot of words that other religions use that people outside of the religion do not. Especially when there is a language of scripture that is not a commonly spoken language. Knowing what their words mean is the beginning of comparative religion and is a huge aspect of the course.
