Master of Arts (MA) in the Religious Roots of Europe – University of Copenhagen


Master of Arts (MA) in the Religious Roots of Europe

This international and innovative Master's programme in the Religious Roots of Europe (RRE), offered by The Faculty of Theology, gives students a unique opportunity to explore the three major European religions - Christianity, Judaism and Islam - and the impact that these religions have had on European culture and society.

The importance of expertise in religion and in its role in society and culture is increasingly recognised. As a graduate of this programme you will be qualified for scholarly work, e.g. in PhD-programmes, as well as for teaching. You will also be able to enter into specialised occupations in government institutions or organisations dealing with culture, integration, diplomacy etc. and in private companies with business relations with e.g. the Middle East.

The programme is offered in English.

Student Interview

"The programme puts all three religions into perspective. Learning about other religions’ similarities and differences demythologises prejudices about them"
