This course also serves to create an understanding of world religions and how other people, throughout the world, view and understand religion. There is an expectation of a maturity level for the student who takes this class, a level that will require tolerance and open-mindedness when learning and discussing other religions. The World Religions class will study 5 different world religions throughout the course of study. After an overview of key concepts of the five religions, two of the religions will be studied much more in-depth. By the end of the course, students will have completed a 1,500-1,800 self-study/investigative research paper on an aspect of one of the religions. International Baccalaureate courses are open to any Granite Bay High School student. All IB exam and registration fees apply. ALL students enrolled in IB courses are required to complete the entire course and sit for the external exams in May.
