RS 121

Evil (New Course Code)

How do the religions of the world define evil? How do they suggest it can be overcome? Classical and modern writers from Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism will be considered.

This course, while it remained as RS100L, used to be a bird course. Now, with a new course code, the course might ask you to "read" tons, and to understand the material. Do you like reading? This course is for you then. (Note, few books used in this course are listed in Sparknotes... lol)

Need to keep up on the material for sure.

The required readings do not always need to be read. The quiz materials are mostly from the lecture slides, and perhaps only a couple of the MC questions are from the readings, which can be guessed.

i am currently taking the course online and was wondering if anyone would possibly have the textbooks for the course? i'm short on money and need to borrow the book of readings for the text coming up. Any advice for the test? are the readings very important in order to do well on the tests?

Interesting course. Took it as an elective and enjoyed it. Readings/Assignments were not difficult.

This course does not require a lot of time (ESPECIALLY the distance education version) But the problem is that the three online tests are multiple choice, which isn't bad, but the way the questions are asked in very convoluted ways, so beware But I'd take it again :D
