Theology & Religious Studies

Everyone has an opinion on religion, but few people can interpret this complex phenomenon accurately. This Master's programme trains you to become a specialist in the field of religion and culture.

The one-year Master's programme in Theology and Religious Studies focuses on the relationship between religion, culture and society. You will learn to understand and analyse their dynamics.

You can choose from four specializations:

  • Religion, Conflict and Globalization
    You will acquire knowledge of the relationship between religion, conflict and peace building.
  • Religion and Cultural Heritage
    Specialization in material and immaterial heritage
  • Religion and Pluralism, Ancient & Modern
    Focus on the relations among Jews, Christians, and Muslims in the antique world and how these relations have formed our modern society.
  • Spiritual Care (Dutch only)
    You will study spiritual care in contemporary society and learn to function as a spiritual caregiver in an institution.


You will finish the programme by writing a thesis. All programmes are taught in English, with the exception of Spiritual Care.

Over religie heeft iedereen een mening, maar weinig mensen kunnen dit complexe fenomeen goed duiden. In deze master word je specialist op het gebied van religie en cultuur.

De eenjarige master Theologie en Religiewetenschappen richt zich op de verhouding tussen religie, cultuur en samenleving. Je leert de dynamiek hiervan te begrijpen en te analyseren.

Je kunt kiezen uit vier programma's:

  •  Religion, Conflict and Globalization
    Je verwerft inzicht in het verband tussen religie, conflict en vredesopbouw;
  • Religion and Cultural Heritage
    Je specialiseert je in materieel en immaterieel erfgoed;
  • Religion and Pluralism, Ancient & Modern
    Over de relaties tussen joden, christenen en moslims in de oudheid en hoe deze relaties onze moderne samenleving hebben gevormd;
  • Geestelijke Verzorging
    Je verdiept je in de geestelijke en spirituele zorg in de hedendaagse samenleving en het functioneren van een geestelijk verzorger in een instelling.


De eerste drie programma's worden in het Engels onderwezen. De master sluit je af met een scriptie.
