History of Eastern Religions is a one-semester introduction to Hinduism and Buddhism. Students are challenged to attempt the arguably impossible task of thinking from another's religious perspective. Primary readings include The Bhagavad Gita and Teachings of the Buddha. Requirements include interviews with Hindu and Buddhist practitioners, guest speakers, and discussions concerning the importance of religious literacy in an increasingly connected world.
