How do religions come into being? How do they affect people and societies? What role does religion play in various cultures and conflicts?
Most cultures are profoundly shaped by religious phenomena. Of the seven billion people on Earth, six billion call themselves religious. Religion does not occur in isolation; it connects with people's daily behavior, economically, politically, socially, and psychologically. Wherever there are people, there is religion, always and everywhere. Religion is one of the forces driving humankind, which is why knowledge of religion is so important. The central question you will learn to ask yourself is not to what extent religions are 'true', but how religion affects people's lives and what people do with it. The interaction between religion, culture, and society is the main focus of this bachelor's programme....
