A sweeping overview is provided of the major non-Christian world religions: Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism, and Buddhism. These are studied through an 'empathic' approach, enabling the student to appreciate the nature of these religions through the lens of committed participants. To this end, students study primary source material as well as visit cultural and worship centres. They also establish a deeper understanding of similarities and differences between Christianity and other major religions.
