    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Most college professors do not care about how the student feels but Dr.Bell makes sure that the student is getting what they deserve. He interacts with his students and make you want to learn about religions. If you like a discussion based class, this is the class for you.

    Course highlights:

    One day Dr.Bell asked us to play characters in a reading we were supposed to read for homework for us to better understand about the reading. This activity helped.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For Dr.Bell's class make sure you read the assigned reading before coming to the class because sometimes he quizzes you on it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because this course and this professor have helped me to broaden and deepen my perspectives on the different religions and cultures of the world. It helped me to visualize different religions in a different way after i learned about the core beliefs in each religions and how it is the same in other religions.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a different perspective after this course on the various religions,especially Islam. In the media, Islam is wrongly tied in with ISIS but i learned that the religion itself, promotes peace and unity, which is the opposite ideals of ISIS. In the end, i learned that all religions value unity,peace,harmony and good virtues but each just has a different name for it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course was not hard at all, although it did require participation in the interesting class discussions about a religion. The assignments requires a small group of students to visit 2 different religious sites that are different from one's religion. Overall, it was an easy class because as long as you paid attention in class, were an active learner and did the assigned readings, then the exams were a breeze.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it makes you learn to be more opening minded. In this course we learn about the eight major religions of the world and see why they do what they do, and how they are affected by the society. It is also very insightful; it makes you question things happen in society today. You can develop a critical thinking mentality because of the issues or questions that arise in the discussions in the course readings.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would have to be learning how each religion came about, for example, who founded the religions and the different stories of creation and ultimately created the various gods. In this course you may become more religiously tolerant because you get a basic history of the religions, you get to understand why the people that practice this particular religion do what they do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice i would give students would be to try and keep up with the readings, some of them are very intriguing and helps you to understand discussions in class. After each reading try to think of questions you have about the readings or what was engaging about the arguments within the readings. The ability to evaluate, and critique large amounts of complex material in one to two pages is one of the most important skills you can learn in college and required for this class.
