About

Highlighting the interaction between experience, religious tradition and theological reflection, and including both historical and contemporary perspectives, the two-year Religion and Diversity - Conflict and Coexistence programme of the University of Oslo offers a broad approach to diversity.

Overview

Why choose this programme?

The Religion and Diversity - Conflict and Coexistence programme of the University of Oslo investigates the connectedness between religious and other identities in pluralist societies. Lived experiences – for instance, with migration, conversion or gender discrimination – are part of the program’s analytical horizon.

The Faculty of Theology at the University of Oslo has a wide-ranging expertise in historical studies, biblical studies, Islamic studies, interreligious studies, gender- and post-colonial studies, contemporary theology, and practical theology. Thematically, theoretically and methodologically, the program draws on all these competences.

The Faculty’s long-standing relations with researchers and academic institutions, also in the global South, will be an important resource for the program.
