    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it helps an individual learn about other religions/cultures in a non-biased way. Religion is not one-dimensional, but integrates other social spheres which allows it function smoothly or not.

    Course highlights:

    Through our weekly readings, my perspective has broadened greatly. There is no right faith and all religions have some wisdom to offer. The role of women in religion was also interesting to learn about. It seems that female oppression originates in the teachings of sime religious doctrines.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to achieve success in this course, read assignments thoroughly and highlight important information. Be prepared for a quiz everyday on whatever you read, even if there is not one.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Lewis is very knowledgable in his field of study and makes the class engaging for everyone regardless of faith background. The class is more sociologically based so students can approach religion and culture through a secular sense.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights from this course were class discussion and dissecting the definitions of religion and culture and how they intertwine. I learned that one's religion is greatly informed by culture and personal experiences.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to come into this course with an open mind and to be open to working in groups and contributing to group discussion.
