Concept of the Masters programme

Religion or Theology are usually associated with maxims, morality, belief, tradition and also conflicts. The Master of Religion puts religious belief into a societal context. However, due to the manifold of definitions of religion and religious studies, there is not one single postgraduate programme. This degree course can take the shape of Biblical studies, Judaism, Hebrew or Arabic studies, religious history or only the history of one particular religion.

In any case, you develop an understanding of the religious and spiritual argumentation behind any belief. Through courses in religious communication, counselling, morality, pedagogy or gender studies you acquire an in-depth comprehension of the spheres of religious influence in every-day life.

More than pure religion: comparing and interlinking theological studies with other topics

Moreover, religious studies are often linked to media, culture or pedagogy. Here, the meaning of a particular religion is put into context with society at large. Welfare, counselling or religious teaching are often the focus of these programmes. Your career prospects are diverse, depending on your individual motivations, study track and personal skills.
