|General presentation|| |
The Master of Arts in the Study of Religions is designed as a specialised programme with a strongly interdisciplinary character. It allows students to acquire theoretical and methodological skills in the social sciences of religions and the history of religions. Students learn to use tools that will help them to analyse and understand issues bound up with the plurality of religious fields and multiculturalism, within the framework of seven possible specialisations: Indian Religions, Judaism, Christianity, Migrations, Marginalised Transversal Traditions, Sociology and Psychology of Religions.
This degree course is in the process of revision. A new study plan will be introduced in 2015.
