The Master's programme Theology & Religious Studies: Research offers specializations in a Thematic and in a Theological tradition, which are directly linked to research centers that are part of the faculty.
The Master's programme Theology & Religious Studies: Research is a two-year programme (120 EC). The programme consists of in-depth training in specialized research and allows advanced studies in all major subdomains in theology and religious studies. There are ten different specialisations to choose from.
Regardless of which specialization you choose, the first year starts with a course in Hermeneutics where this pivotal approach to theology and religious studies will be taught and exercised. You will also take two courses within your chosen specialization and do a research internship that provides insight into the chosen field of study. Furthermore, you will develop your academic skills preparing and delivering a conference paper. In addition, you will read two classical (theological) works together with students from other specializations.
In the second year, you will follow two courses in your specialization and one course of your own choice, further deepening and broadening your academic expertise. Furthermore, you will design a proposal for your thesis and a PhD dissertation, and gain skills in writing articles for peer-reviewed journals.
This programme is also part of Faculty of Religion and Theology’s Talent Policy.
The start date of this programme is September 1st.
