S17C11 Myths and Reality about Islam

Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, particularly in the western hemisphere. Unfortunately, this growth has been accompanied by several myths about Islam, particularly issues related to human rights, gender equality, sanctity of life, personal freedom, and the concept of Jihad. The course will cover and discuss these issues in light of the current political atmosphere, historical events, and the true teachings of Islam.
