A survey of the major world religions, primarily Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Students will also reflect about the encounters between these religions, especially the prospect for inter-religious dialogue.

Encyclopedias, handbooks, dictionaries and other reference books can be a great place to start your research. They will:

  • Give you the background information you need to start researching unfamiliar concepts
  • Help you to narrow your topic down to a manageable research question
  • Provide fast, reliable sources for definitions, facts, and statistics.
