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.
