Depending on your choice, the ICE programme will lead to a Master of Arts (Humanities) degree or a Master of Theology degree. Students taking the Master of Theology degree should specialise in the thematic module Religion, Conflict and Dialogue. Humanities students can choose two thematic modules. All students may choose one additional module in their optional studies.

Students can specialise in different local, national and supranational cultures in, for example, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, or North America. Also, the perspectives of the study of religions, theology, communication and indigenous studies provide students with the regional, cultural, and socio-political knowledge, which will help create a theoretical framework for understanding the dynamics of intercultural encounters. Furthermore, a range of disciplines at the University of Helsinki supports the study of the ICE thematic modules, such as media, social psychology, and area and cultural studies.
