analysis of their basic founding principles and assumptions regarding the existence of humankind. Student/learners will be encouraged to challenge their existing assumptions, beliefs, and the existing knowledge base they have with regard to these and other types of religious beliefs and challenge their traditional understandings of how religious faiths apply their doctrines to human understanding, assumptions and patterns of living.
