Welcome to the course Perspectives on Behavioral Science of Religion at Högskolan i Gävle!
The course is given in English. In this course we look at how theories from Psychology of Religion, Sociology of Religion and Didactics can be used to explain and understand different types of religious experiences, for instance mystical experiences, as well as religious behaviour.
The course starts November 9th at 10:15-12 with a course introduction and call for registration.
We have two more meetings on November 23th and December 7th at 10:15-12. The last meeting is an examination seminar.
