REL 2300 - World Religions

This course is a critical survey of global religious expression with a focus on the major religions of the world to include Hinduism, Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism, Shinto, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The aim of the course is to examine each religion objectively, with the understanding that religion is the byproduct of cultural exchanges and socio-historical contexts. Where the opportunity for comparisons exists, the course will inquire how global religious expressions are both similar and distinct. Finally, the course will approach religious artifacts as dynamic texts that are illustrative of the relationship between interpretive communities and their changing cultural context.

This course fulfills the “Gordon Rule” writing requirement and must be completed with a grade of C or higher pursuant to State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.030.
