Master’s Program in International Relations and Ecumenism, Distance Education

The new 1-year M.Th. program in International Relations and Ecumenism, offered by the University College Stockholm, aims at educating future professionals in the field of international and inter-church relations.

Relations between various Christian communities constantly evolve. Old models of cooperation and conflict between churches decline, and new ones emerge instead. These processes depend on both theological and socio-political factors. This M.Th. program develops the skills of analyzing and improving the models of relations between Christian communities, as well as external relations with society and other religions.

After graduation, the student will be qualified to deal with an array of issues related to international relations and ecumenism, including church diplomacy, religious politics, and security. Those who successfully complete the course will be qualified to work in the fields of ecumenical relations and foreign affairs for non-governmental Christian organizations and other international organizations.
