The wide range of courses offered in Religious Studies in Basel is due to the collaboration of the Faculty of Theology and the Faculty of Philosophy and History.

The resulting courses currently include a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in Religious Studies. Religious Studies in Basel is also one of the pillars of the Joint Degree Master in Religion, Economics and Politics at the Universities of Basel, Zurich and Lucerne. In this context, Basel is developing a focus on religious economics.

Basel is particularly recommended as a location for those who are interested in a pronounced systematic study of religions, European religious history and contemporary religious history.
