Master's programme Theology & Religious Studies (60 ec)

The master’s programme Theology and Religious Studies consists of six specializations, aiming at different professions:

  • Building Interreligious Relations
  • Exploring a Discipline
  • Media
  • Peace, Trauma and Religion
  • Spiritual Care

The specialization Spiritual Care consists of general courses and of courses that are specifically meant for education within one’s own religious background, e.g., Islam, Protestant Christianity, Eastern Orthodoxy, Buddhism, Judaism. There is also a possibility for “free” students to follow this specialization in order to become an independent care-giver.
