Applied World Religions is a hybrid immersion and classroom based course being offered to students in the Summer/Fall of 2019. India is the most populous democracy on the planet, a place where Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, and Islam flourish side by side with Christianity and Judaism. Join us on a remarkable three-week odyssey as we experience first-hand the rich interplay between these great world religions in a modern, rapidly changing and developing nation. Our journey will take us from the Punjabi frontier with Pakistan to the delta of the great Ganges River on the Bay of Bengal. We will travel by plane, train, bus, taxi, auto-rickshaw, cycle-rickshaw, elephant and camel! We will dialogue with the local faithful in visits to holy sites along the way, as we also enjoy local food and unique cultural activities. On our return to the US, students opting to take this course for credit will spend the Fall semester in a seminar style setting reflecting upon and integrating the experience, and will receive credit for a one-semester senior religion elective.
