Theology and Religious Studies: Media

Type: MA | 1 jaar
Taal: Engels

The specialization Media within the master program Theology and Religious Studies focuses on the influence of the media and popular culture on modern-day religion and spirituality, and vice versa.

Religion is part of popular culture worldwide. Also, religious communities use media like television and social media to communicate with the world. So, knowledge on ancient religious traditions is nowadays being communicated through new high-tech media. Consequently, much of what we know and read about religion or spirituality is being affected by the media.

The specialization Media will equip students with a sound theoretical basis of communication, in relation to religion and spirituality. It will enable students to critically reflect on the role of the media in everyday representation of religion and spirituality. The student will gain analytical, communicative and operational skills to become an independently thinking professional.
