    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Buygis has a passion for this subject and makes it an enjoyable course, even though it is required for all freshmen to take in order to graduate.

    Course highlights:

    I went into the course not knowing much about religion or how it related to my everyday life, but after I completed the course I left with a lot of new knowledge and a deeper religious connection.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you participate in class because I struggled with this part of my grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I know that this class is a requirement for all Saint Martin's students, but I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in any of the following: sociology, psychology, anthropology, or any other social sciences.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the concept of religion can be applied to almost any aspect of life. Religion is so much more than what it seems to be at the surface.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open-minded! Whatever your religious affiliation is, it's important to come to class without bias.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This helps you get an overview of many major religions and also was a great way to learn more about the Saint Martins campus and history. Teacher is very enthusiastic and helpful as well!

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn of religions I had never heard of before and also learn more about the major world religions while not focusing on just one religion. Also everyone was able to bring in their own ideas and values into the class as well which was great.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask for help from the professor when you need it. All the professors are super helpful and will even take your interests into account.
