Study of Religions (MA)

About the Programme

The Study of Religions (MA) offers profound studies in the history and social reality of different religions. By applying scientific methods, we teach students about the basics of the subject. The programme provides students with an understanding of the fields of Applied Study, Psychology, Sociology, and History of Religions. Key thinkers on the subject are introduced to provide an overall understanding of the scientific approach to the theory of religions. There is a strong applied aspect of the MA programme as well, as it teaches research methods and combines practice and theory through case studies. During the programme, students develop skills for understanding the main theories on religion and skills for doing applied research and independent research on subjects related to religion.

Research areas cover Religion in CEE , Christian Churches, New Religious Movements, Psychology of Religion, and History of Religions. Graduates of the Faculty usually choose their careers in government, churches, private or international organisations, NGOs. There is also an option to continue PhD studies at the Faculty.

SZTE Experience

julieJulie Deschanels- Faculty of Law and Political Sciences- Business Law

I chose the University of Szeged, because it has a very good international reputation. When I previously checked the website of the University I liked the fact that Szeged is not too big and too small. I received a lot of help from the ESN mentors. I like Hungary and Szeged a lot and I’m enjoying my classes. When I have free time I go jogging, or play foosball with my friends. In Szeged I really love Süti, nem süti, the river and TIK, because it is just perfect place to study: specious place with full of students and books.


Gizem Gültekin – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

I am studying at University of Szeged as a former Erasmus student, currently as a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder. Both the institution and the town are wonderful. Many entertainment and sports facilities are provided, and it is also easy to make new friends. It is a great experience to attend the University, and I would like to stay in Szeged and continue my academic studies.
