Advanced Certificate in Religious Studies

DPP collaborates with the Center for Religious Studies to offer the option for MPA students to obtain an Advanced Certificate in Religious Studies. Students engage in the study of religious phenomena from a historical point of view and from a variety of interdisciplinary approaches and cross-disciplinary perspectives. As CEU is located in a region that has been the crossroads of major religious, cultural, and political histories and lineages, this specialist field provides a unique experience and access to sources in three areas: in-depth engagement with religious thought and traditions, focusing especially, but not exclusively, on the three monotheistic religions in a historically and conceptually grounded way; comparative study of their social, societal, institutional, cultural, intellectual, and political contexts; and implications.
