Phenomena and traditions occurring in the context of religion are reflected upon in terms of philosophical standards of rationality. On the one hand, this process is based on the discussion of central problems of theoretical and practical philosophy. On the other hand, it grounds on an exemplary investigation of topics crucial to theology and religious studies respectively. Thus, the Philosophy of Religion programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt shows an interdisciplinary design. Furthermore it is characterized by its claim to consider continental approaches as well as analytic approaches that dominate the philosophical landscape in the Anglo-American world.
In course of its first phase, the Master’s program trains the skill of precise analysis, reconstruction and discussion of concepts and arguments brought forward in the Philosophy of Religion. The second phase of the program highlights the capacity to elaborate and defend a self-contained philosophical position. By teaching these key competences, the Master’s Program prepares its graduates for a broad area of qualified jobs. They fulfill the requirements of professions in university and higher education. At the same time, they have access to non-philosophical jobs in business and public society that demand a conclusive assessment of complex problems raised within an intercultural and multi-religious society.
