The introduction of a Stream and a Specialization in Global Religions for students in the Bachelor of Global and International Studies.

Religions can promote peace, or they can create or exacerbate violence. Religions can generate and bolster a sense of national identity; equally, many religions foster a sense of transnational allegiance and identification. Religion can act to legitimate state authority and the status quo; equally, religion can provide the impetus for revolutionary change sought by marginalized and oppressed communities. Students will encounter questions regarding the role of religion in modern, secular states: the location of religion as either deeply private and personal or as a powerful actor in the public sphere.
