Careers

Your skills are relevant for a career in the field of religious studies, as well as for a range of employment opportunities where a critical, curious, and academically-trained mind is essential.

The Job Market

Graduates of the programme can find jobs in education, journalism or another writing profession, scientific research, cultural management, and leadership positions that require expertise in the field of religious diversity and change.

Graduates can also opt to continue their studies in the Research Master's programme Religious Studies, which offers an excellent opportunity for those interested in pursuing a PhD in this field. Students who are able to complete the one-year Master’s programme in Theology and Religious Studies can usually complete the two-year Research Master's programme in one additional year. Due to the limited number of places available in the research programme, all applicants must undergo a selection procedure.

Skills

Furthermore, you will have acquired the knowledge and competences (such as source analysis, organisation of research material, and presentation skills) you will need for admission to a PhD programme as well as other professional positions involving scientific research and its public dissemination.
