Religion without Borders

This course offers a different kind of introduction to the study of the world's major religious traditions. Rather than approaching each religion as an independent tradition that developed in a vacuum, this course looks at the ways that religions develop in conversation with one another. The course provides students with both basic knowledge about specific traditions and equips them with tools for thinking about how they operate in our global age.
