International profile

In recent years there has been an increased focus on the internationalisation of research and higher education in Denmark and abroad. This is also reflected at the Faculty of Theology for instance by the Nordic Master degree programme named Religious Roots of Europe and in continuing education which offers a wide range of courses taught in English. An English Master degree programme in African Studies is offered by the Centre of African Studies. Further information can be found under Study Programmes.
