Master’s in Islamic theology

The University of Copenhagen will offer a so-called flexible master’s education in Islamic theology from January 2016 – the first university in Denmark to do so.

The program will be taught in Danish at the Faculty of Theology and will include courses such as pastoral care in Islam, social ethics in Islam, and Islam’s relationship with other faiths.

The courses can be taken individually for 3,000 kroner each within the Open University framework or attended as a part of the flexible master’s education, which costs 25,000 kroner.

The program is practically orientated and aimed at anyone interested in deepening their understanding of Muslims’ religious identity and practice in Danish society, including priests and people working with ethnic minority groups in Denmark.
