About THS

Theology and Human Rights

Stockholm School of Theology /Teologiska högskolan Stockholm (THS) offers programmes on undergraduate (Bachelor) and postgraduate (Master) levels in both Theology and Human Rights. Through cooperation agreements with other universities in the Nordic countries THS also provides PhD studies. PhD studies can be conducted in English, while Bachelor and Master level courses are offered in English to a varying degree. THS is the major provider of religious and human rights education in the Stockholm region.

The School

Stockholm School of Theology gives training to some 600-700 students annually, in both full-time and part-time courses. The School welcomes students from a variety of denominational and non-denominational backgrounds, in a climate of academic rigour, international contact, and challenging issues.

Most courses are in Swedish, but every spring semester we offer a full time program in English for which international students are invited to apply. In particular, students from our international academic partners are invited.

A wide network of international academic and other institutional contacts provides a resource-base for international exchanges for students and professors. We also have a flow of international guests, students as well as visiting scholars.

Stockholm School of Theology is a non-governmental university college owned by Uniting Church in Sweden. It attracts students from all over Sweden, not just from the Stockholm region. A significant number full-time students are candidates for the priesthood in the Church of Sweden (Lutheran).
Further information about THS in English is provided in the School’s brochure, which can be downloaded as a pdf-file, see the left-hand column of this page.

Stockholm School of Theology is a member of Stockholm Academic Forum - 17 universities and the City of Stockholm.
