Doctoral programmes

In 2016, Stockholm School of Theology (THS) was accredited for the Doctor of Theology degree by the Swedish government, subsequent to the recommendation of the Swedish Board of Higher Education. 

THS offers doctoral programmes in three main subjects areas. In addition to the own doctoral programme in Systematic Theology EHS is also in a collaboration with Åbo Akademi University (Finland) and the Lutheran diocese of Stockholm that has been running since 2013. A doctoral programme in Biblical Studies, with specializations in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament respectively, runs from autumn 2017. A doctoral programme in Practical Theology, with specializations in Ecclesiology, Church History, and Psychology of Religion, begins in 2018.

There is also collaboration with Åbo Akademi University regarding doctoral students in Human Rights.
