Religion, Culture and Society

Religion plays a significant role in societies globally, but the religious landscape is changing. Art and popular culture is full of references to religion and mythology and often public debate addresses issues like ‘identity’ and ‘cultural heritage’. The master in religion, culture and society addresses the content and function that religion and worldview has today both socially and culturally, in research and in the lives of human beings. This both gives a broad overview and in-depth knowledge about global, national and local perspectives.
