About the programme of study
The Master's programme in Religious Studies is a systematic study of religion where students specialize in a chosen field of study.
Why choose Religious Studies at NTNU?
The Department of Religious Studies at NTNU focuses on the public dimension of religion, in particular its relationship with politics, science, and technology. Unlike many other fields of study within the humanities and social sciences, we offer the opportunity to develop knowledge of contemporary and historical texts, practices and traditions. We train students to understand and explain this central human phenomenon within the context of deep human history and examine the present day politcal implications for such a history. We explore how different kinds of knowledge about religion are used in society at local, national and international levels.
Our department hosts leading specialists in Islamic studies, conspiracy culture, and south Asian religions, along with the only full time position in Judaism and cognitive sciense of religion in Norway.
