The Woolf Institute is delighted to announce the launch of a new e-learning course, Religion is…, which will be offered in 2017.
Many of the misunderstandings and misinterpretations surrounding religion today stem from a lack of study as well as scrutiny. This course will provide participants with an introduction to the Abrahamic religions. It will provide an understanding of the beliefs that underpin these religions. The course will allow anyone who has a thirst for knowledge to discover narratives and stories and to reflect on key events and historical moments. It will help participants understand how each religion has changed over time and in different places. The course will also show how religion contributes to, and is influenced by, society in the 21st century.
The e-learning approach offers individuals the opportunity to interact with fellow participants from all over the world. Many participants from across Europe and around the world – including Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, as well as Australia, China, Kenya, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the United States to name but a few – have engaged with our e-learning courses.
The closing date for applications is 16 January 2017. The course commences on 6 February 2017. For further details, visit http://www.woolf.cam.ac.uk/study/e-learning/religion-is.asp
