Study of Religions (MA)

About the Programme

The Study of Religions (MA) offers profound studies in the history and social reality of different religions. By applying scientific methods, we teach students about the basics of the subject. The programme provides students with an understanding of the fields of Applied Study, Psychology, Sociology, and History of Religions. Key thinkers on the subject are introduced to provide an overall understanding of the scientific approach to the theory of religions. There is a strong applied aspect of the MA programme as well, as it teaches research methods and combines practice and theory through case studies. During the programme, students develop skills for understanding the main theories on religion and skills for doing applied research and independent research on subjects related to religion.


Research areas cover Religion in CEE , Christian Churches, New Religious Movements, Psychology of Religion, and History of Religions. Graduates of the Faculty usually choose their careers in government, churches, private or international organisations, NGOs. There is also an option to continue PhD studies at the Faculty.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.

My name is Tamerlan Mendybayev. I am from capital of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan. Currently I am first year student at the Faculty of Agriculture. I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.
