Philosophy of Religion (Master of Arts)
|Course content and focus areas||
The Master’s Program in Philosophy of Religion is open to students holding a bachelor degree (or an equivalent), who intend to specialize in the area of Philosophy of Religion. Focused on research, the program grants a broad academic discussion of questions that are essential to the Philosophy of Religion, thereby proceeding primarily from a systematic, but also from an historic point of view. 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 Master’s program 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.
