Major social changes, such as religious radicalisation and immigration, have increased – and changed – the need for religious competence and knowledge about different religions. In addition to high-quality research information, the need is increasing for applied knowledge that can answer social questions.
Profound research-based information helps us understand the momentous changes taking place in Europe and worldwide, including multiculturalism, religious extremism, inter-religious relations, diversity and the future of wellbeing.
Several international assessments have found the Faculty’s research to be of a high quality. Our thematic fields of research and teaching include historical theology, global religion, as well as religion and society.
