Religious Studies

Religious studies are a scientific discipline that deals with a complex and multidimensional religious phenomenon from different perspectives by insisting on objectivity and value neutrality. This is basically a non-theological approach focusing on cultural, social, historical, political, psychological and other dimensions that are accessible to social sciences and humanities methods. Thus, the doctoral programme religious studies is designed interdisciplinary and interinstitutionally in cooperation between three faculties of the University of Ljubljana (Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Theology and Faculty of Social Sciences) which focus on the area with their own professional approaches by being fully aware that is impossible to limit the studies to merely one approach.
