Understanding World Religion – Debunking Western Ideas (HS Only) (TSam)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

World Religions is a Social Studies course that will examine religion through a historical, social, political, and economic lens. Students will understand the connections between religion and society, and the many ways these two ideas are intertwined. By looking at both the origins of religion and our modern world, students will have a fuller understanding of the beliefs, culture, and conflicts surrounding the religions of the world.
