Master’s Programme
Philosophy of Religion

The English-language Master‘s program Philosophy of Religion trains students in the skills needed to analyze religious and other worldviews. It does so both from the perspective of philosophy (especially metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics) and in dialogue with neighboring sciences. The Master’s program illuminates the similarities and differences between religious and scientific truth claims, and explores the intersections between religion, society, and politics.
