Course description: REL 301 - Comparative Mysticism
In this program, you’ll learn about the comparative examination of Eastern and Western mystical traditions from antiquity to present day.
By studying the historical background of mysticism throughout religious studies, you’ll be able to explore if you’ve had any of your own personal mystical experiences. This course will also help you identify your religious autobiography and the religious influences you’ve had throughout your life.
