The course provides you a greater understanding of the impact of religion and spirituality in the contemporary world. It could be followed part-time twice a week. This permits you to study in a flexible manner, while keeping other commitments.
This course enables you to become highly aware and expertly articulate about the diversity of global religious and spiritual life. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the programme seeks to probe relationships between religion, spirituality, society, identity, ethics and popular culture. Through a re-discovering of texts and traditions, you will explore central concepts and teachings as well as analyse the phenomenon of religion from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives.
The areas of studies are divided mainly into: Holy Scriptures, Ministry, Comparative Theology (Ecumenism, Inter-religious Dialogue and Dialogue with society), Historical Theology, Systematic Theology and Ethics. You will gain advanced research skills and will network with scholars dedicated to the study of religions or religious thought.
