Presentation

The acquisition of a deeper understanding of religions has become a matter of some urgency. The 21st century has been marked right from the start by so-called “religious” conflicts attributable to a complex web of factors that actually go far beyond religion but are nevertheless indissolubly linked to it. At the same time, population movements have become increasingly frequent, heightening our awareness that the pacific coexistence of different cultures requires both knowledge of our own identity and a respectful understanding of other identities.

The Masters Degree in Science of Religions: History and Society offers solid knowledge and analysis methods with which to address the great religious traditions in human history, and tools for managing religious diversity in contemporary societies.

The first, introductory, part of the course, comprises methodological, historical and legal content. The second part is divided into two pathways, allowing students to specialize in “History of Religion” or “Religious and Cultural Diversity Management”.

Teaching staff on the Masters Degree include renowned specialists from Universidad Pablo de Olavide, Universidad Carlos III and Universidad de La Laguna (and also from other universities and institutions).
