If you do not have a bachelor's degree in either the Humanities or Behavioural and Social Sciences, you will first need to complete a pre-master's programme before you can enter one of the tracks of the master's programme in Theology and Religious Studies.
There are several electives you can choose from, depending on the track of your choice. Below, you will find the complete programme.
1st semester (30 ECTS)
- Concepts and Methods 1: Study of Religion
- Rituals in Theory and Practice or Judaism (R&P)
- Hinduism and Buddhism
- Anthropology of Religion (RHW) or Hebrew Bible and Ancient Judaism (R&P)
2nd semester (30 ECTS)
- Religion, Media and Popular Culture (RCH) or Religion and Politics (RCG) or Psychology and Sociology of Religion (RHW)
- Ethics and Secularity
If you have followed minor courses in Theology or Religious Studies, it might be possible to follow a shorter pre-master's programme. Please contact our student advisors to see what the options are.
For the Dutch taught specialization in Spiritual Care, you need to follow a different pre-master's programme.
For the pre-master's programme, you will pay a so called compensation in stead of regular tuition fees. This compensation is the same for both EU and non-EU students.
Corona & admission with a HBO-degree
If you want to be admitted to the pre-master's programme for the MA programme in Theology and Religious Studies based on your HBO degree programme for the academic year 2020-2021, you are allowed to have 15 ECTS of your HBO degree programme left. You must provide a statement of your HBO degree programme in order to finish your degree programme in the academic year 2020-2021 (closure statement). You have to complete your HBO degree programme before September 1, 2021, otherwise you are not allowed to continue the pre-master's programme or to start with the master’s programme.
