    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Ali is one of the most interesting professors. He is very funny and you can tell he wants all his students to do well.

    Course highlights:

    This was the first religious studies class I took at UCR and it taught me about the diversity of asian religions and that most are polytheistic.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to lecture, make sure you get to know the Professor.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a class where you must be interested in learning the basic ideals of Southern/Eastern Asian religions. Class participation is essential, as there are in-class clicker questions that you answer with a remote. These count for a good chunk of the grade and are easy points. There is a great amount of note taking since he puts a lot of information on his PowerPoint slides.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of taking this course is being able to tour a religious site based on one of the religions you study in the class. As a group you get to tour the temple or shrine and it is a very nice experience. Another highlight of this course is the professor knows how to get your attention just by the way he talks. He does not have a monotone voice like other professors. I learned a great amount about my own religion, Hinduism, as well as how people in different cultures believe in their own set of ideals.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you must take the time to do the readings and actually absorb the information given to you. On the tests, the multiple choice is simple if you know the material, but the free response section requires a lot of thought and makes you show your knowledge on the religions.
