The Job Market
As a Western Esotericism graduate, you will have developed unique skills relevant to a career in the field of religious studies, as well as a range of employment opportunities where a critical, curious, and academically-trained mind is essential. The programme prepares students for a career in teaching, journalism or another writing profession, as well as an advisory position in a public organisation or government institution.
An academic career
Graduates can also opt to continue their studies in the Research Master's programme Religious Studies, which offers an excellent opportunity for those interested in pursuing a PhD in this field. Students who have completed one of the one-year programmes of the Master's in Theology and Religious Studies are usually able to complete the two-year Research Master's programme in one year. Due to the limited number of places available in the research programme, all applicants must undergo a selection procedure.
