The shape of world Christianity has been transformed through globalisation. Therefore, it is more important than ever to analyse the trans- and intercultural character of theology, encounter the cultural variety of Christianity, and reflect upon the interaction between Christianity and other religions. The "Intercultural Theology" M.A. programme seeks to address these objectives by a new approach to studying theology in this thrilling time of global change.
The "Intercultural Theology" M.A. is a programme of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, one of Germany's leading research universities, the University of Applied Sciences for Intercultural Theology (Fachhochschule): www.fh-hermannsburg.de/. Intercultural experience is a key goal of this programme, and therefore students are invited to spend one semester abroad at one of the cooperating theological institutions all over the world. The global focus, emphasis on intercultural experience, and the combination of theology and practice, makes this programme unique in Europe.
The M.A. programme "Intercultural Theology" aims at equipping graduates to foster intercultural, interreligious and interdenominational communication and cooperation. The knowledge, competence, and experience students achieve during the programme will qualify them for a broad range of occupations. Namely, the programme prepares its students for careers in institutions of mission and ecumenism, development organisations, non-governmental organisations, media, and academia.
