Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it is an amazing introductory course to religion in general and the sacred rituals, traditions and beliefs we hold with them! It will teach you about some of the most basic principals of religion, such as what an axis mundi is and go all over the religious spectrum from Christianity and Judaism to Hindu and Buddhism, and even ancient religions, New Religious Movements, and about religious extremism. I would recommend any and every student take this course as it is exciting, challenging, fun, and broadens your perspective about the world surrounding us! You should keep up with any readings, and make sure you do your work in a timely fashion!
The highlights of this course was experiencing and learning about all these different religions, religious traditions and beliefs, and just looking at the world from various perspectives to broaden my understanding or outlook on the world around me. I learned about many different religious practices from the stone age and theories surrounding ancient practices. The most interesting part of the class was the focus on New Religious Movements and about religious violence/religious extremists because of learning how and why some people use religion to justify violence against people and why some people choose to join New Religious Movements.
