Program Description

MA in Religious Roots of Europe

Lund University

Programme overview

The Religious Roots of Europe (RRE) is a two-year Nordic Master´s programme offered by the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies at Lund University in cooperation with the universities of Aarhus, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Oslo.

The programme focuses on the formative periods of Judaism, Islam and Christianity, their common roots, early interaction and contributions to European culture. The programme is unique in its focus on the formation of all three religions in a comparative perspective. As a joint Nordic programme it gives students access to professors and research at six different universities, as well as to the Nordic institutes in Rome, which are associated to the programme. Lund University, as well as its partners, is internationally recognised for its research in the field of study. The use of e-learning, local tutorials and joint Nordic compact seminars provides a unique combination of campus studies and exchange with students based at other universities.

Note that even if the programme uses e-teaching, the whole programme cannot be studied from a distance. Participation in Nordic compact seminars is part of the programme, and also local tutorials.

Career prospects

The formation of multi-religious societies in Europe and the increasing role of religion today create a need for individuals with an in-depth knowledge of the formation and history of religions, especially Judaism, Christianity and Islam, as well as a need for future research in the field. A graduate from this programme will be able to enter into specialised occupations in government institutions or organisations dealing with culture, integration or diplomacy and in private firms, for example with business relations with the Middle East. The programme also provides an excellent basis for PhD studies.
