I took this class to fill the distribution requirement, and for an easy class. There are 3 essays throughout the year and readings for each class. The readings are not necessary at all for the essays. I didn't do a single reading all semester and did well on the essays by just looking back at the PowerPoint/videos on canvas. Besides the class being extremely low work and effort, it is extremely boring and very hard to sit through the class. If you are looking for an easy religion class then you should take this one, but be prepared to be bored.

Intro to Buddhism is a great class if needed for a distribution requirement. Although many long and confusing readings are assigned each week, they are not necessary to read to do well in the class. The lectures are pretty boring and confusing if you aren't well informed or interested in Buddhism to begin with. The class assignments are only 3 papers, in addition to a percent of your grade dedicated to participation. I found it often hard to participate because of the confusing material.

I signed up for this course because Buddhism is a very interesting topic for me. I felt like this course provided some valuable content, but most of the content comes from lectures that weren't very engaging. There were consistent, lengthy readings that didn't need to be done for a good grade but were helpful in understanding what was happening in the lectures. Weekly reflections were due on Saturday nights and were long enough to be a nuisance. William is a very kind and passionate professor, but not very engaging. Probably wouldn't recommend this course.
