World Religions

Course Name : World Religions
Course Code : RCSC-601
Units : 4

In this class, students will be introduced to the major ‘world’ religious traditions practiced in Indonesia: Hinduism, Buddhism, Chinese Religions, Christianity (Roman Catholic and Protestant) and Islam, along with Judaism. Our goals will be 1) to gain a basic understanding of the beliefs and practices of each religion, 2) to become conversant in the contemporary issues facing each religion, and 3) to gain grounding for continued comparative study and inter-religious dialogue. For this purpose, a practitioner of each of these religions will be invited to give a lecture.
