About This Course
Instructor Who Teaches This Course: Dr. Neal Cushman
“Most people in the world are either Muslims, Roman Catholics, Hindus, Buddhists, or animists, so this course emphasizes these faiths. Imagine taking a plate of cookies across the street to a family who just moved in, and you find out that they are from India. Would you know how to approach them?”
