GED 250 World Religions (Humanities/Fine Arts)

3 Semester Units

This is an introductory course in world religions. It places the world’s religions in historical context, illustrating the complex dynamic of each religion over time, while also presenting current beliefs, practices, and group formations. Conceptual, worship and social factors of religious experiences from the past to present are examined. Religion’s role in the environment of present and future crises is explored, as well as the challenges of ecology, technology, and globalization—all which have an impact on spirituality.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Discuss the balanced and empathetic approach that is necessary to understand the religions of the world.
  • Understand that in this world there is an increasing amount of difficult choices concerning a growing awareness of current injustices, religion included, that can not avoid challenge and criticism.
  • Discuss how religion has responded to present developments in ecology, technology, globalization, and other trends, and what possible futures for religion there may be in light of them.
  • Discuss religious movements in the hope that appreciation of the dynamic, changing quality of religion will be enhanced.
  • Understand that human empathy can furnish an awareness of what the information presented means to human beings for whom they are gateways to ultimate meaning.
