Programme Structure


The MA in the Religious Roots of Europe is a two-year programme concluding with the master’s thesis. You can select from and combine a range of courses over the duration of your studies.

In total, the Programme is assigned 120 ECTS credits, consisting of four terms of full-time study, each covering 30 ECTS credits. The Programme consists of modules that vary in the number of ECTS credits allotted (modules are marked as boxes in the figure below). The modules of every single term must be examined before the student can be examined for the modules of the next. There is a steady progression culminating in the fourth term with the master’s thesis. It follows that the master’s thesis should be assessed as the final module in the Programme.
