The Study of Religions (MA) offers profound studies in the history and social reality of different religions. By applying scientific methods, we teach students about the basics of the subject. The programme provides students with the understanding of the field of Applied Study, Psychology, Sociology, and History of Religions. Key thinkers on the subject are introduced to provide an overall understanding of the scientific approach to the theory of religions. There is a strong applied side of the MA programme as well, as it teaches research methods and combines practice and theory through case studies. During the programme students develop skills of understanding of the main theories on religion, skills of doing applied research and independent research on religion related subjects.

Research areas cover Religion in CEE, Christian Churches, New Religious Movements, Psychology of Religion, Global Religion and History of Religions. Graduates of the Faculty usually choose their careers in government, churches, private or international organisations, NGOs; and there is an option to continue PhD studies at the Faculty.
