Overview

Programme overview

The Master's research specialisation in Philosophy of Religion focuses on questions regarding the relation between philosophy and religion, in effect of modern and contemporary philosophy and religious experience. You will examine the works of such authors including: Agamben, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Weber, Freud, De Certeau, Foucault, Gauchet, Said and Taylor.

This programme is the only research master in philosophy in the Netherlands that offers a specialisation in philosophy of religion. It is also closely connected with the Center for Contemporary European Philosophy, meaning you will learn from and work with experts in the field. 

What will you learn?

  • Gain a theoretical understanding regarding faith and religious practices, and the link between philosophy and religion
  • Link the subject of religion to other philosophical fields such as philosophical ethics, political philosophy, philosophical anthropology or the history of philosophy

  • Get valuable experience designing, conducting and presenting your own research
