About the Course:

What is 'religion? Is it a strictly Western phenomenon? What is culture? And what does it have to do with religion? We approach these questions in the context of Sikhi.

This is an introductory course to Sikh religion and culture. All students, irrespective of background, are encouraged to enroll. Class format is structured for lecture and discussion. Class matter is heavily philosophical, and deals with Sikhi as it relates to existential thought. No previous philosophical or religious knowledge is expected.

Homework and assignments are minimal, but one final essay is required. The length of the final paper depends on how many units (1-3) the class is taken for. Because workload is minimal, attendance to class meetings is mandatory.

How to Enroll:

All will be able to enroll. Just e-mail about any questions.
