    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because no matter what major one selects in college we will all face people in the workforce and life in general that have distinct backgrounds which include religion. This course allows one to learn about the various popular religions across the globe such as Shinto and Jainism. Each religion has their own sacred text(s) and various beliefs that the followers practice or preform that one will learn about. Integrated in the course is a required visitation to a religious site and later present what one has learned and experienced in a PowerPoint to the class. Dr. Roam always strives to make every religion seem significant and full of good wisdom which enables one to appreciate other religions other than our own. After this course, I can guarantee that everyone will gain a more open minded worldview. Overall, this class helps one accept diversity and coexist with one another in the beautiful home we call Earth.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are several but all are of equal value. One memorable part in the course is the numerous classroom discussions about the rituals and practices included in the religions one learned of, which expands one's perspective and knowledge of every religion discussed. As well as enable one to listen to the different opinions and insights of classroom peers. Another noteworthy element was the opportunity it gave to visit a place of worship other than one's own. This allowed one to integrate and to be received into a different community for a brief moment which will forever change the way one views that religion and may even have one revisit one's previous outlook on life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students who plan on taking the course to make sure to complete the quizzes and the essays and to study for the three exams as they weight heavy on one's overall grade. To receive full points in attendance, make sure to be in class every time. Get to know your professor and peers because part of learning in a course is learning about and becoming comfortable with those around you. Always ask questions because it will expand your knowledge and someone else is probably asking themselves the same thing. Don't be afraid to participate in class, share your knowledge, opinion, and experience to further develop worthy discussions in class, you'll be surprised how much you learn from others.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a real experience to travel through the history of different world views on religion. Helps to understand the people of the world better and the different variety of perspectives on god and the reason we exist.

    Course highlights:

    I learn different beliefs from Judaism to Buddhism. A persons beliefs impacts the way they live and their overall person. Learning their beliefs familiarized me with people i did not understand.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take in everything even if your not interested in others beliefs because it will be to your advantage of understanding the people in the world you live in.
