Around the World (in 1 Semester and 5 Religions)
Religious traditions around the world have so thoroughly shaped modern, daily life, from our food and drink, to our music to our political systems. Join us for a fascinating look at how understanding of the major religious foundations of the U.S. and other nations can enhance global understanding and the ability to address current individual and national strife. Designed for a combination of first-year and second-year students, course readings, class discussions, guest speakers, and field trips will foster students’ leadership as informed global citizens who can recognize, respect, and speak with confidence about religious and non-religious topics.
