Religious studies and theology focus on the supernatural, sacred or divine and the moral code, ritual practices, dogmas, values or associated institutions. Religion has several functions that are expressed through the human behaviour: cognitive or action function, anxiety reduction, social function, compensation and identity. This interdisciplinary field studies the impact of religion in the international environment and the presence of traditions in the modern world. Research focuses on different approaches on religions and its place in history.
Religious studies and theology are concerned with the study of the spiritual beliefs and their particular characteristics and their expression in nowadays society. A Bachelor’s degree in religious studies and theology can specialize in culture, conflict, librarianship, economics, geography, history and others.
The study of one or several religions equips the graduate of a Master’s degree in religious studies and theology with skills and knowledge that may lead to a career as a priest/minister, teacher/lecturer, advice worker, community development worker and others.
