COURSE DESCRIPTION (FALL 2017)

Comparative study of the world’s great religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; original sources stressed.

Religion is alive, dynamic, and changing. In this course section, we will explore religion “as it is lived: as human beings encounter, understand, interpret it” (Primiano). This means we will attempt to discover “everyday religion” in our own homes, on our own bodies, and through our personal stories.

ARTICULATION FOR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES:

This class is acceptable for credit at UC and CSU. It counts towards GE AA/AS area 3; CSU area C2; and IGETC area 3.
