Instructors from the Religion Program housed in the College of the Humanities are leading 6 lectures on World Religions through Learning in Retirement.

This course surveys major world religions, focusing on a different tradition each week. Different lecturers from Carleton’s Religion program will each speak to their own areas of expertise. The series begins with an introduction to the academic study of religion, followed by an overview of Indigenous traditions. Next we will move through the origins and historical developments of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, featuring faculty areas of specialization in each of these traditions. From here, the course will look at the origins of religion in India and China and focus on the development of Hinduism and various forms of Buddhism.

The compensation from this Learning in Retirement Lecture Series will go towards a religion student scholarship.

The Lecture Schedule is available here.
