Format: Campus

Program Description:

The idea of ‘Abrahamic Religions’ has gained enormous momentum in recent years. The MA in Abrahamic Religions provides students with a unique, cutting-edge degree through which they will learn about Judaism, Christianity & Islam separately, as well as the interactions – past, present and future – between these religions and between their adherents. The MA offers high-quality training in the field and a large measure of flexibility. Students can choose from a wide range of optional modules and tailor the degree to their interests. The centrality of the 'Abrahamic' concept to world affairs – religious, political, cultural, and other – makes this degree particularly attractive to those who wish to pursue a career in politics, inter-communal relations, the media, government, or for Rabbis, Priests, or Imams seeking to gain authoritative knowledge of other religions and of their own religion in its context. Graduates are prepared to pursue leading positions in the community and industry, or to continue with doctoral research in comparative (‘Abrahamic’) religions. KEY BENEFITS - Unrivalled location in the centre of London allows students access to London's academic, cultural, and communal resources. - A very rare opportunity to study this topic to MA standard: the University of London is the only university in the world to offer graduate degrees in Abrahamic Religions. - Broad curriculum offers students tuition in all three Abrahamic Religions jointly, as well as dozens of optional topics from which to choose. - Numerous high-profile links with leading organisations (religious, political, academic, and communal) will help graduates find rewarding career opportunities.
