How to address people whose culture and religion seem unfamiliar to our worldview? Does having faith necessarily imply divisions? Is otherness an unavoidable source of conflict?  What tools can theology and religious studies offer to approach otherness and to overcome the challenges that stem from religious diversity?

Life in our multicultural society leads to encounters with cultural and religious diversity both in our private and professional life. The secular setting meets more often people for whom religion is not only a matter of private beliefs but part of their lifestyle. By providing an introduction to the various theories of ecumenical and interreligious dialogue, the course sets foundations for reflection on the encounters with religious diversity. The course provides a panoramic view of human efforts to build bridges between religious traditions through studying developments in the philosophy, theology and practice of dialogue. Analysis of concrete cases will be used to better understand the dynamics of encounters with cultural and religious otherness in everyday situations as well as in political and social conflicts.

The course takes place online and requires active participation on the digital education platform. A dozen lectures and seminars with associated digital aids will be set up during the course, as well as interim assignments and a final written assignment.

International student?

Make your application in the First Admission Round at universityadmissions.se.

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
