Program description

The Religious Studies program focuses on religious plurality in the Western world: differences within religions, differences between religions, and new phenomena such as radical individualisation that reshuffle the religious landscape. Within the program the focus shifts from official doctrines and established traditions to overseeing the whole spectrum of religious experience and practices in Western societies.

Religious Studies at the University of Amsterdam takes an interdisciplinary approach to religion: theories and methods from the social sciences, literature, cultural analysis, history and philosophy are taught and discussed. The program gains coherence through the combination of an empirical focus on religion within Western cultures, a theoretical focus on religious plurality and a methodological focus on interdisciplinary research.
