According to researcher David B. Garrett, who gathers religious information for the Encyclopedia Britannica and World Almanac, there are more than 10,000 religions in the world today.

The religions class is just one of many interesting classes being offered at WNCC Fallon this fall. In total, there are more than 325 classes available at WNCC Fallon, including online courses.
