Religion plays a significant role in societies globally, but the religious landscape is changing. Art and popular culture is full of references to religion and mythology and often public debate addresses issues like ‘identity’ and ‘cultural heritage’.
The master in religion, culture and society addresses the content and function that religion and worldview has today both socially and culturally, in research and in the lives of human beings. This both gives a broad overview and in-depth knowledge about global, national and local perspectives.
The master study is relevant for teacher education and for teaching about religions and worldviews in secondary and upper secondary education.
It also gives in depth knowledge relevant for a series of jobs in private and public sector where competencies related to human resources management, outreach to local community, internationalization and information are required.
The study of Religion, Culture and Society at University of Stavanger provides its graduates with generic competencies in processing big amounts of information, in order to map, synthetize, analyze, and interpret these. In addition the study qualifies for PhD studies.
