The world of religions is both local and trans-national and has an extremely varied history. Religions influence cultures, identities and lifestyles and often have a say in politics. Religious Studies is a key way of exploring such correlations. It is a discipline that takes an inter-cultural approach to understand the religious phenomena in history and today in a methodologically precise and coherent way.

The program aims to understand general historical and cultural correlations and approaches that enable us to perceive the idiosyncratic nature of religious phenomena. The focus in Frankfurt is on the various methods of empirical cultural studies as well as on working with a hermeneutic approach to religious phenomenology that explores subjective, internal perspectives of religion....

The Master’s Program in Philosophy of Religion is open to students holding a bachelor degree (or an equivalent), who intend to specialize in the area of Philosophy of Religion. Focused on research, the program grants a broad academic discussion of questions that are essential to the Philosophy of Religion, thereby proceeding primarily from a systematic, but also from an historic point of view. Phenomena and traditions occurring in the context of religion are reflected upon in terms of philosophical standards of rationality.

On the one hand, this process is based on the discussion of central problems of theoretical and practical philosophy. On the other hand, it grounds on an exemplary investigation of topics crucial to theology and religious studies respectively. Thus, the Master’s program shows an interdisciplinary design. Furthermore, it is characterized by its claim to consider continental approaches as well as analytic approaches that dominate the philosophical landscape in the Anglo-American world. In course of its first phase, the Master’s program trains the skill of precise analysis, reconstruction and discussion of concepts and arguments brought forward in the Philosophy of Religion. The second phase of the program highlights the capacity to elaborate and defend a self-contained philosophical position. By teaching these key competencies, the Master’s Program prepares its graduates for a broad area of qualified jobs. They fulfill the requirements of professions in university and higher education....
