Religious Studies

This webclass is only given in Eglish. Assignments can be handed in in Dutch.

Religion is an omnipresent everyday phenomenon in practically all cultures. Of the seven billion people on earth, six billion call themselves religious and worldwide, there are no fewer than 10,000 religious denominations! Religion does not occur in isolation; it affects people’s daily behaviour economically, politically, psychologically and socially. Religious Studies investigates religion as a phenomenon. The central question we ask ourselves is not to what extent religions are ‘true’, but how religion affects people’s lives and what people do with it. The webclass Religious Studies gives you a taste of what it entails to study Religious Studies at the university of Groningen. The webclass is divided into four weeks. Every week, we’ll investigate religion in a different context, for example the relationship between Religion, Conflict and Peacebuilding. You’ll learn to critically reflect on the relationship between religion and culture, analyse challenging texts and take a stance!
