Pretty easy, overall.
The class studies different religion within different cultures and allows the students to observe and reflect on various ways that different society's think and practice their religious ideologies. For me, it kind of showed me that there were different ways of thinking about the same thing and was almost a meditation on themes such as life, death, creation, purpose, and so on. I genuinely enjoyed going to class every day and was very sad when the simester was over. Almost changed majors over it
One highlight of the course was watching 'Baraka'. It was a documentary with no narrative or plot, just purely visual and auditory cinematography of global cultures. It was very meditative and the visuals are just drop dead gorgeous. Very similar to Samsara (it's better to experience as it is difficult to explain)

Advice for students:
Come in with an open mind. At first I was very cynical of the course mostly because it had the word "religious" in it and I automatically thought it was either a rehashing of my high school classes that (very blandly) taught the four major religions or a small church sect dubiously disguised as a college course ready to inform me of the wrongful sins I was committing just being alive. However, as soon as the class started I was pleasantly surprised and very much enjoyed my professor. She was super funny and made everything so interesting from the get go
