Learning Outcomes

Learning Outcomes

The ReD Global Learning Outcomes (LO) are indicators of progress of the learning process, reflecting increased levels of attainment and progress throughout the programme. ReD Global distinguishes six different “learning lines,” in accordance with the domain dimensions of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).

A ReD Global graduate can:

Texts & Contexts

  • Demonstrate focused knowledge and critical understanding of relevant data and different sources for the study of religions, the coexistence of and conflicts between diverse religions, religious intolerance, and of their associated conceptual frameworks.
  • Identify and critically select information from a variety of sources relevant to the study of religions. Manage this information to address relevant problems in their different contexts.
  • Address problems relevant to the study of religions in their wider societal contexts by analysing different information sources and using advanced methodologies

Theories & Concepts

  • Accumulate specialised knowledge and critical understanding of analytical and methodological approaches relevant to the study of religions and religious diversity. Differentiate between the principal theoretical approaches to the study of religions and religious diversity, current debates and research orientations in the field.
  • Apply the knowledge of relevant theories and concepts to identify and formulate an academic problem relevant to the study of religions. Analyse an academic problem and arrive at a valid conclusion via the use of appropriate information and methodology.
  • Address societally relevant issues that are interlinked with attitudes towards religions by making critical use of theories, concepts and advanced methodologies.


  • Demonstrate informed and critical awareness of the intellectual underpinnings and contexts of the study of religions and their relationships to, and interconnectedness with, other fields of study (e.g. literary theory and criticism, semiotics, art history, archaeology, anthropology, law, sociology, philosophy, economics, natural sciences, bioethics).
  • Manage information and methodological tools from other domains to address problems in the study of religion. Demonstrate ability to present problems and findings to diverse audiences.
  • Provide different perspectives on and contribute to solutions for societal problems with a shared (global) relevance by participating and cooperating in interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and transnational groups.

Initiative & Creativity

  • Contribute innovative perspectives and approaches to current societal challenges related to the role of religions, drawing on relevant methodologies and interdisciplinary debates.
  • Plan, execute and deliver an individual and original research-based contribution to knowledge development.
  • Creatively synthesize insights from different studies in complex organisational processes to produce results in an appropriate and timely fashion.


  • Demonstrate knowledge of the specific methods used to communicate information about one’s field in both scholarly/academic and other (public) contexts.
  • Efficiently communicate, both orally and in writing, and in more than one language. Use appropriate terminology and modes of expression, taking into account academic conventions relevant to the discipline.
  • Actively and constructively discuss (complex) ideas, problems, and solutions with diverse audiences, encompassing divergent viewpoints and across different groups, with awareness for one’s own strengths and weaknesses.

Professional Development

  • Develop, adapt, and apply knowledge of the concrete ways in which perspectives on religions can benefit society, across different (professional) settings.
  • Work effectively as an individual and in a team to complete specific tasks related to the field of religious studies (incl. data collection & analysis; presentations of results). Develop, execute and manage complex projects in an effective and timely fashion. Stay updated with relevant knowledge and take responsibility for the organisation of one’s own learning process.
  • Take responsibility for and coordinate one’s ongoing learning to efficiently and effectively adapt to (changing) requirements of the labour market, whilst maintaining adherence to standards of (academic) research, integrity and critical awareness.
