Religions influence our ways of approaching ethical and moral issues and thereby characterise our communities and encounters with other people and cultures. As a student of Study of Religions, you will not only learn about non-Christian religions and secular and atheistic worldviews, but also learn to understand Christian cultures and traditions from a scientific perspective. Study of Religion deals with religion in the past and present from various viewpoints, including purely historical studies, comparative studies and studies in the psychology, sociology, anthropology and pedagogy of religion. In addition, you can study various thematic areas, including the interplay of religion and media or religion and gender. During your studies, you will learn the basic concepts and stances of different religious traditions, about the practice of religions, and about the religious conceptions and holy texts. You will also gain understanding of contemporary religious movements and trends.
