Master Program in Religion, Politics, and Democracy

The new two-year masters program in Religion, Politics and Democracy, within the Department of Eastern Christian Studies, Stockholm School ofTheology (University College Stockholm), aims at educating future professionals and scholars in the understanding of the relationship between religious ideas and institutions and the public sphere.This program explores the interaction and mutual influences between theological ideas, religious beliefs and practices, and modern secular society and the contemporary globalization processes. Approaching these phenomena from an Eastern Christian perspective, the courses in this program will help students learn about how theology and Church practice relate to the ever changing social and political environments, how ideology (both within the Church and in society) structures our perception of the social sphere, and how one can engage with social and political contexts and democratic processes in a constructive and creative way.The program equips students with theoretical knowledge, critical analysis and writing skills necessary for future work as professionals (e.g. educators, ministers, public servants, analysts, NGO personnel and activists) or for research (at Ph.D. level).


To be eligible for the program, an applicant must either have a bachelors degree in theology/religious studies, comprising 180 ECTS credits, or a degree in another subject which includes Religious Studies or Theological courses worth at least 60 credits, including a thesis worth at least 15 credits. At least 15 credits should be in Eastern Christian studies or equivalent subject areas. Students with other relevant subjects or an equivalent foreign degree may be admitted based on individual assessment and examination.Students may also be admitted to later parts of the program (61-120 ECTS credits) based on a special application, provided that the relevant prerequisites are met.An applicant needs to submit a letter of motivation.The entry requirement for studies is equivalent to the English 6 course at Swedish upper secondary school. Students from outside Sweden, or students who cannot verify, proficiency in English, are required to make an internationally recognized test, e. g. TOEFL IELTS or equivalent.
