The purpose of this course is to introduce students to a selection of religions that have had a global impact on all of humanity (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism).Students will study the impact religion has had on the human experience, art and architecture, cultures and societies, and the global development of history. There are two goals for students in this course: First, to understand the history and global impact of various religions; Second, to build acceptance and respect for differences through exposure to a variety of religious beliefs. My audience is high school students.
