Religion & Global Futures, Master of Arts (M.A.)
Are you interested in learning about contemporary religion from a global perspective? Are you looking for a programme that will help you to understand important issues concerning our shared futures? Our Master's programme in Religion and Global Futures equips you with the skills to engage with these matters in an international and supportive learning environment.
When it comes to the most important global issues of today, and the ‘tomorrows’ that these issues are shaping, religion plays a crucial — and often overlooked — role. This MA programme offers you a unique opportunity to investigate religious dynamics that are currently unfolding in our entangled world, and to understand how these dynamics relate to issues of worldwide concern, such as social inequality, international conflict, and climate change. Through the programme, you will acquire knowledge and skills that enable you to pursue a variety of career paths, including roles which directly engage with the global issues that the programme explores. Bayreuth also offers a perfect environment for you to build your own research agendas with the close support of researchers working at the cutting edge of their disciplines.
