MTh in International Relations and Ecumenism

The new MTh program in International Relations and Ecumenism, offered by the Stockholm School of Theology, aims at educating future professionals and scholars in the fields of international and inter-Church relations. 

Relations between various Christian communities constantly evolve. Old models of cooperation and conflict between Churches decline, and new ones emerge instead. These processes depend on both theological and socio-political factors. This MTh program develops the skills of analyzing and improving the models of relations between Christian communities, and of the Churches’ external relations, with society and other religions.

After graduation, the student will be qualified to deal with an array of issues related to international relations and ecumenism, including Church diplomacy, religious politics and security. Those who successfully complete the course will be qualified to work in the fields of ecumenical relations and foreign affairs for non-governmental Christian organizations and other international organizations. The program also provides the grounding for research at a more advanced level.
