About

The one-year Theology and Religious Studies - Interreligious Studies programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam focuses on specific professional fields.

Overview

In the Theology and Religious Studies - Interreligious Studies programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam you will be prepared for a professional career within or outside religious institutions. Each specialization focuses on their own field.

Globalisation has given rise to an even greater need for religious dialogue in all areas of society, from politics and business to education and daily life. Increasing mobility, changing ways of communication and flows of migrants have all made the world a smaller place – and the need for social cohesion greater than ever. This track will give you the knowledge and skills you need to help build bridges between people from different faith traditions and so contribute to that improved social cohesion. If you want to become part of that, this track might be for you.

Future 

On graduation, you will have the skills you need to become an interfaith leader in our increasingly multi-religious world. You will be able to critically analyse different theological, philosophical and ideological perspectives at the interface of different religions. You will have acquired inter-religious literacy through your participation in various dialogue activities.

Promotion alumni sessions Master’s day

During the Master’s day, you can also meet our (international) alumni during several workshops. In these sessions they will tell you more about career opportunities after finishing your Master’s degree.
