As a Western Esotericism graduate, you will have developed unique skills relevant to a career in the field of religious studies, as well as a range of employment opportunities where a critical, curious, and academically-trained mind is essential. The programme prepares students for a career in teaching, journalism or another writing profession, as well as an advisory position in a public organisation or government institution.
Graduates can also opt to continue their studies in the Research Master's programme Religious Studies, which offers an excellent opportunity for those interested in pursuing a PhD in this field. Students who have completed one of the one-year programmes of the Master's in Theology and Religious Studies are usually able to complete the two-year Research Master's programme in one year. Due to the limited number of places available in the research programme, all applicants must undergo a selection procedure.
