Survey of Religious Experience (SRE) is an introductory course required of all religion majors in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. The aims of this course are two fold. First, the course will introduce students to the debates in religious studies regarding the nature of religious experience and the limits of academic efforts to document such phenomena. Second, students will learn the primary sources (from a range of literary genres) that document accounts of religious experiences from a range of cultural and historical contexts.
