The Faculty and Department of Theology offer courses that range from the study of the major world religions to new patterns of values, from the history of religion and text-critical biblical research to psychological, ethical and philosophical studies.

We offers three international masters programmes and over 80 courses and more than 40 online courses.


The programmes in religious studies are available on both Bachelor and Master levels. The three international masters programme gives both 1-year or 2-years Master degrees.

Postgraduate studies

After the graduation there might be an opportunity to apply to our PhD studies programmes. As a PhD students you find that research here has disciplinary breadth as well as representing a variety of specialisms with eleven research disciplines and a wide range of subjects covered in research and teaching. This makes the Department of Theology in Uppsala the largest research institution in Sweden when it comes to religion and theology.
