Master's in Religion in Contemporary Society

© Sarah Perez Kuwald

The Master program in Religion in Contemporary Society (RCS) provides students with the theoretical, methodological and socio-historical knowledge and expertise they need to conduct research into the role religious traditions and figures play in contemporary processes of globalization and localization. Whereas the study program for Science of Religion in Bern focuses on the philosophical study of written primary sources from Asian religions especially, the interdisciplinary RCS program concentrates on the study of contemporary religious cultures using methods of empirical social research.
