Are you fascinated by religion and Christianity in particular? Have you ever wondered what the impact of Christianity is on society, or how society influences Christianity? Would you like to study this topic in depth with students from around the world?

In this MA programme you will learn how Christianity influences law, politics, economics, modern art, science, and world religions. At the same time, you will study the effects that society has on the history, sociology and theology of the Christian faith. In this way, Christianity and society mutually shape and guide each other, with implications for the lives of people everywhere in the world.

You will benefit from:

  • expert knowledge of highly qualified lecturers, 75 percent of whom are full professors;
  • a multidisciplinary programme taught by theologians, sociologists, economists, law specialists and philosophers;
  • small classes (on average 5-10 students), allowing for individual attention and personal contact with fellow students and teachers;
  • an international classroom with students from various countries, religions and academic backgrounds, ensuring a lively and balanced dialogue; and
  • excursions to organisations and museums focused on the interaction between Christianity and society

You will become adept at:

  • high-level philosophical questioning and debating;
  • analysing and reflecting on current theological and societal issues;
  • understanding and solving problems in multidisciplinary contexts;
  • writing clear academic papers and presenting them to an audience; and
  • working in a self-directed and independent way

After Graduation

Upon graduation, you will be an expert on the relations between Christianity and society in multiple fields of study. You will be able to use your expertise in advisory or management roles in religious organisations and churches, in government organisations and in NGOs. You will also be able to apply your academic knowledge in the fields of media, politics and economic relations.
