World Religions is a challenging and yet rewarding course that, through exploration of diverse religious perspectives, seeks greater understanding and appreciation of others with whom we share the world. Paradoxically, the more we learn about people's differences, the more we learn about our human commonality. The academic aspects of RELG 120 are supplemented by field activities that offer a direct experience of people who espouse religious traditions studied in the course. At the semester's end, past students have often expressed great satisfaction at the human perspectives, mind-opening insights, and profound multi-cultural understandings that this World Religions course afforded them. If those sorts of outcomes appeal to you, then this may well be a course that you would find worthwhile!
Weekly assignments that count for credit will include, but not be limited to: reading of text materials and completion of online worksheets; online discussions; viewing of videos and online presentations.
