Spirituality and Religion

Type: MA | 1 jaar
Taal: Engels

This masterโ€™s programme focuses on spirituality as a key dimension of religion. Spirituality is often defined as individualised, experience-oriented religion, in which legal, doctrinal, and institutional aspects are perceived to have secondary importance. In our program we focus on spirituality and religion as they manifest themselves in the most diverse areas of culture and society, both in the past and in the present. Our students are trained to use both historical and social-scientific methods. The programme has three core courses and a number of electives, which are the basis for three different specialization areas. For students particularly interested in Western esotericism, especially from a historical perspective, we offer Spirituality and Esotericism in Western Culture. For students interested in the contemporary religious landscape, there is Religion and Spirituality in Contemporary Societies. Finally, for students with an interest in Islam, there is the possibility to opt for Spirituality and Religion in Islam.
