Why study a Masters in Hinduism?
With over 800 million followers, Hinduism is the third largest religion on the planet. It’s also one of the world’s oldest and most diverse religions, encompassing many different religious traditions. As such, it makes for an extremely rewarding and rich area of study. Typically, courses aren’t limited to the theology of Hinduism – you could also explore elements of archaeology, philosophy, languages and anthropology.
The broadness of Hindu Studies means that postgraduates are typically well-equipped to find work in several sectors. For example, you may be employed wherever intercultural dialogue is important, such as in a non-governmental organisation (NGO), a religious institution or a charity. You’ll also be in a good position to carry on your studies to PhD-level.
