How are religion, conflict and peace related? What is at stake in the "musealization" of religion? What role does religion and spirituality play in our experience of health and wellbeing?

Religion is an important factor in many national and international social themes. Sometimes this is obvious, especially when we read news about religious radicalization. Other times, it is much less obvious and we are not as aware of the influence religion has in social phenomena, such as in cases of sexual health or climate change. Experts on religion are needed in a world in which religion is a permanent part of everyday life.

We train these experts in our master’s tracks on religion, discussing subjects ranging from heritage studies to peacebuilding, from health & wellbeing to politics.

  • Religion, Conflict and Globalization
  • Heritage and Religion
  • Religion and Pluralism, Ancient & Modern
  • Spiritual Care (Dutch)
  • Work and Meaning (Dutch)
