How are we to live in a world of other people’s pain? What are the obligations of those who are living well to those who suffer? Throughout history and across cultures people have been inspired by visions of a better world. If you are interested in the moral and ethical predicaments of the world we are living in, as well as the role given to various religious traditions involved, then the Master’s Programme in Religion in Peace and Conflict is for you.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The Master’s Programme in Religion in Peace and Conflict will help you to evolve into a public intellectual, a person who reflects upon his or her engagement and wishes to argue for personal ideas and visions in the public discourse. You will acquire comprehensive knowledge in religiously and ethically biased social activism in history and present. It provides you with a set of methodological tools in order to be able to identify and analyse contested issues both independently and critically.
The programme also develops your skills in writing longer academic texts, as well as to further plan, shape, and complete research projects in the area of religiously and ethically grounded engagement. We invite you to explore our previous students’ academic work.
During the programme you can expect to:
- evolve into a public intellectual
- acquire comprehensive knowledge in religiously and ethically biased social activism
Please note that this is a distance learning programme. The Swedish Migration Authority will not grant you with a residence permit to attend this programme.
You are interested in social movements, including themes of peace, environment, animal rights, solidarity, and global justice. Your Bachelor’s degree might consist of an unusual combination of subjects, reflecting your unique interests and personality. You might also have some practical experience working with these issues since you graduated and will gladly share your experiences with others. Either way, you want to make a difference in our world.
Even though theology interests you, you do not necessarily confess to a certain religion and you would enjoy the opportunity to debate the big questions with people from other cultures. You have no problem expressing your thoughts in writing or voicing your opinion in dialogue with others.
A future PhD education is a possibility you might have thought about so you would value the possibility to study some methodology courses.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts in Theology (120 credits) with History and Social Sciences of Religion as the main field of study. It is also possible to graduate after one year to obtain a Master of Arts in Theology (60 credits).
