HIST 492/REL 492/HIST 592
World Religions

  An introducition to Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam--seven of the world's most important relgions/religious philosophies.

This course will be offered during the 1st Summer Session (May 23—June 24, 2016).  Class is scheduled to meet from 10:00-11:50 M-F.   Note that every Friday is a "beyond this material world" class: we will be meeting in cyberpace rather than in person.

I'm hoping to get authorization to offer the class as a hybrid with students either taking the class live, online, or through a combination of live and online instruction.  

I will be updating this material soon.  Meanwhile, here are links to the 2013 version of the course.
