The American Religious Experience

This course investigates ways in which people in the United States have expressed and are expressing themselves religiously. There is much religious diversity in America, and we will study religious traditions represented by and beyond those of us in this class. There are also religious characteristics that most Americans share, and that influence our public and private lives together. Those, too, will be an essential focus of our investigation.


This syllabus was created for the Young Scholars in American Religion program.
