Religion, Health and Wellbeing MA

University of Groningen Theology and Religious Studies

Full time September MA 12 months

About the course

What role does religion and spirituality play in our experience of health and well-being? How does the biomedical focus of current healthcare practice affect us?

This interdisciplinary degree programme will examine what it means to be ill or healthy in diverse, individualised and highly technological societies, from psychological, cultural, ethical, and political perspectives. Not only do religious, cultural, political, physical, and technological diversity influence how we try to recover or maintain our health, they also influence what we think 'health' is in the first place.

This track within the Master's Programme in Theology and Religious Studies, has two specialisations: 'Spiritual Care [Geestelijke Verzorging]' and 'Ethics and Diversity'.
