The principal goals of World Religions are for students to develop a deeper understanding of both their own religion and those of their neighbors, and for them to come to appreciate how much the different religions have in common.

World Religions is a comparative study of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. The central theme of the course is that, despite their significant differences, these religions share a basic conception of the divinity and of humanity, namely, that God—whether Allah, Brahman, or the Dharmakaya of Buddha—is the one infinite source of everything: absolute, transcendent, eternal, and uncaused; and that human beings are finite replicas of the divine reality. Of special importance are the related ideas of God as perfect love and of humans—in their interpersonal relationships—as reflections of that love. 

This is a one trimester course which counts .333 credits toward Parish graduation requirements, and it fulfills the 11th grade religious studies requirement
