About this course

The Faculty of Theology at the University of Bern is the first faculty in the German-speaking world to offer a Master program in Religious Studies.The program has existed since 2005. Today's multicultural societies increasingly need to take into account different religious identities. Well founded and reflective knowledge of one's own religious tradition and the traditions of other religions is extremely important here. Experts familiar with different traditions are therefore very much in demand.
