Department of Religious Studies and Theology, Stockholm School of Theology

There are many different reasons to study religion and theology. Today, most people are aware that religion plays an important role in more or less all cultures. Whether you call yourself an atheist, agnostic, believer or something else, you understand yourself and the world better if you have a knowledge of religion.

All people live with existential questions. Religion is a factor in all societies. Morality and ethics form the basis for our decisions on many different levels. In an increasingly globalized world, values, paradigms of thought and beliefs meet and sometimes clash. Sweden is a multicultural and multi-religious society, where religion is becoming increasingly visible. In step with new challenges, such as climate and migration, we need the skills to interpret and  analyze our contemporary situation.

At Department of Religious Studies and Theology,Stockholm School of Theology (THS) at University College Stockholm (EHS), we have the knowledge and skills to help our students to meet these challenges. We train prospective priests and pastors from various church families in theology and religious studies, as well as members of other professions. We offer an excellent study environment with committed teachers and leading researchers who offer cutting-edge expertise in church history, biblical studies, systematic theology, philosophy, ethics, religious history, religious behavioral science (sociology of religion and psychology of religion), existential public health, practical theology, human rights, religious education, voice and other speaking techniques. At Department of Religious Studies and Theology,THS you can study at any level from a single course to advanced postgraduate studies.
