Globalisation has given rise to an even greater need for religious dialogue in all areas of society, from politics and business to education and daily life. Increasing mobility, changing ways of communication and flows of migrants have all made the world a smaller place – and the need for social cohesion greater than ever. This track will give you the knowledge and skills you need to help build bridges between people from different faith traditions and so contribute to that improved social cohesion. If you want to become part of that, this track might be for you.
Peace, Trauma and Religion
Religion is often misused to incite violent conflicts, but at the same time, it is one of the strongest ethical and spiritual resources for conflict resolution and transitional justice. This Master’s programme explores and teaches the knowledge, skills and insights you will need for a career in the growing field of peace and conflict studies.
Exploring a Discipline
This track offers you a tailor-made opportunity to deepen your knowledge of one particular topic, or discipline, within theology and religious studies. You can pursue a thematic or disciplinary focus of your own choice; the faculty’s research centres offer various specialisations and the track’s coordinator is happy to advise you personally concerning your options. Your own interests, passion and curiosity are the points of departure for this track.
