HIST215M - World Religions (3-0-3)

This course introduces the major religions of the world by surveying their origins, core beliefs, traditions and practices. The history and ‘world view’ of a number of religions is examined by way of themes, such as: sacred power; myths, art, and rituals; the problem of evil; and the relationship between cultures, ethics, and religions—with an emphasis toward observing the continuity and/or contrasts that exists between them. The key texts, figures, and ideas of major religions will be explored. Course prerequisite: ENGL110M with a grade of “C” or better.
