This course exposes students to the beliefs, practices, ethics, and histories of five major world religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Students study each of the religions in order to gain an understanding of its meaning to individual believers and its impact on human history.
Note: Open to students who will have completed the U.S. equivalent of grades 8 or 9 by the start of Summer Programs. Matriculating and current Choate students who wish to take the course to fulfill the diploma requirement in philosophy/religion must first obtain permission from the academic year History, Philosophy, Religion, and Social Sciences department head as part of the application process for Summer Programs, and must then comply with all attendance and course expectations. The department head will determine final eligibility for diploma credit based upon the student’s successful completion of the course.
