Master’s in Religious Studies
The Master’s curriculum of Religious Studies is open to anybody with a Bachelor’s degree. Many students come from different disciplinary backgrounds, making the classroom discussions especially enriching. The curriculum is designed in a way that enables students to pursue their different research interests, be it some specific religion or research area like anthropology of religion or science and religion. Interdisciplinary, practical research is also encouraged – in addition to the classical Master’s thesis there is also the option to carry out a practical project and in addition take project-related courses from any faculty of the University of Tartu.
Nevertheless, even without choosing a practical project, interdisciplinarity is built into the fabric of the religious studies as a discipline itself and the curriculum reflects that. Courses such as psychology of religion, ethics and religious plurality, religion and politics, religion and nature, etc. complement each other in different ways. The studies are organised in a way that it is possible to work at the same time.
