Contents of the Masters course

The influence of religion on any community is enormous. While the five world religions vary clearly in their religious practice, the moral foundations and assumptions are astoundingly similar in concept. In your Master of Interreligious Studies, you connect, compare and interpret the different religious beliefs and approaches and relate your findings to the societal context in general. This enables you a better understand of arising conflicts between religious groups, fundamentalists or even states.

The interreligious curriculum contains the analyses of sacred writings and traditions. You reflect what is in the writings with today’s day-to-day business. In order to conduct sound analyses, you use tools from sociology, history and ethnology, too.
