About University College Stockholm

A new name!

Stockholm School of Theology is growing, reorganising, and now also has a new, overarching name: University College Stockholm (Enskilda Högskolan Stockholm, EHS). For a long time there has been a demand for a new name, not specifically associated with only some of the programmes offered by our institution. 

We are happy to see the university college grow and the president now assisted by three vice presidents, each responsible for a department. PhD Anne-Christine Lindvall is now vice president, responsible for the Department for Human Rights/Stockholm School of Human Rights. ThD Sofia Camnerin is now vice president, responsible for the Department for Religion and Christian Theology/Stockholm School of Theology. ThD Michael Hjälm is now vice president, responsible for Department for Eastern Christian Studies/Stockholm School of Theology.

Stockholm School of Human Righs now becomes the designation for our programmes in Human Rights, while Stockholm School of Theology remains as a designation for our two Theology departments.

Theology and Human Rights

Theology and Human Rights

University College Stockholm/Enskilda Högskolan Stockholm (EHS) offers programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in both Theology and Human Rights. EHS offers doctoral programmes in Systematic Theology, Biblical Studies, and soon in Practical Theology as well. Doctoral studies can be conducted in English, while other courses are offered in English to varying degrees. EHS is the major provider of religious and human rights education in the Stockholm region.

The School

The School

University College Stockholm 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 programme 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.

University College Stockholm is a non-governmental university college owned by the Uniting Church in Sweden. It attracts students from all over Sweden, not just from the Stockholm region. A significant number of full-time students are candidates for the ministry in the Uniting Church, as well as in the Church of Sweden (Lutheran), and a new programme in Eastern Christian Studies serves the expanding needs of orthodox churches.

University College Stockholm is a member of Stockholm Academic Forum - 17 universities and the City of Stockholm.
