Theology and Religious Studies: Religious Diversity in Europe

Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Beschrijving
  • Overzicht

Europe's cultural history is characterised by religious exchange, adaptations and conflict. In this MA you will explore past and present religious diversities within their European contexts.


In the Master's in Religious Diversity in Europe, you will study the religious field from a historical as well as a social scientific perspective. Taking the present day situation as a point of departure, you will reflect on religion's multiple entanglements in history, culture, society and the individual. As such, the programme offers exciting opportunities to students who enjoy studying religious texts, traditions and practices, and theoretical issues related to religious diversity in Europe.
The Master's in Religious Diversity in Europe offers you the unique opportunity to tailor the programme to your own interests. In addition to core courses focussing on key debates in contemporary religious studies, students can choose a broad range of electives from related Master's programmes such as Western Esotericism, Islam in the Modern World or Identity and Integration (European Studies).
Courses are taught in Amsterdam's historic city centre, an area that boasts the presence of numerous museums, for instance the Jewish Historical Museum, and important libraries, such as the Ritman library, and is perfectly suited to the study of religion.
