BA programme hosted by the Department:
General Humanities (Specialization in Religious Studies and in Art History):

In the first stage of their studies, our students get an introduction into the History of Art, Communication Theory, Film Theory and History, and Religious Studies. They also learn about the most important figures and tendencies in Philosophy. From the first semester, they study a freely chosen Biblical language (Latin, Greek or Hebrew). In the next stage, they gain deeper insight into the Theory of Religion (Sociology of Religion and Philosophy of Religion), Hermeneutics, and specific domains of Philosophy (like Ethics, Aesthetics, Logic or Metaphysics), as well as into the most important chapters of the universal History of Religions. Within the BA programme, our Specialization in Religious Studies offers courses concerning the problematic facets of today’s religiosity, electives in the History and Theory of Religions, among them source-reading seminars in classical languages. As our Department is part of a confessional university, the curriculum of our Specialization emphasizes the History of Ancient Religions, the Theory of Religion and Hermeneutics.

MA programme hosted by the Department:
Religious Studies

This 2-year-long Master, offered in Hungarian language, in full-time and in distance learning modes, includes a strong ancient and modern language module (a choice of Latin, Greek or Hebrew, and English) and a methodological module (essay-writing and methodology of research) in the introductory phase. In the main part of the curriculum, our students carry on with their language courses, study non-Christian world religions, and have numerous courses on religion-related aspects of law, society, gender and art. Among the more specific courses constituting the third part of their curriculum, there figure lectures and seminars concerning cultural studies related to Ancient Christianity, Church History, Greek and Roman religion, Old Egyptian religion, Hinduism and Buddhism, religions of China, Tibet and Japan, as well as a course on the interrelatedness of religion and politics in modern Hungarian history. The last constituent of the programme is a choice of electives specifically offered for this purpose, covering a wide range of subjects within the spectrum of Religious Studies. The composition of a 50-page-long research paper is also a condition of obtaining the degree.
