A grey square
In my first year, I took RELS 103 – World Religions: What You Need to Know, which was taught in a rather untraditional way – by 5 different professors! Each religion was taught by the professor who specializes in it, showing just how much the department prioritizes giving its students the best education possible. It gave us a great opportunity to learn from the best even though it was only an introductory course. Since then, I have continued taking extremely interesting RELS courses such as Cults and Alternative Religions, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in World Religions, and Superheroes and the Supernatural. Overall, the Religious Studies department is home to some of the most caring, knowledgeable, and engaging professors that I have met over my academic career.
