Teologi og religion er to distinkte fagdisipliner som historisk har representert ulike perspektiv på forskning om religiøs tro. Ph.d.-studiet legger opp til en kritisk refleksjon rundt disse fagtradisjonene og den bredde i metode som disse representerer.

Programmet tilbyr dermed en tverrfaglig kontekst for forskning innen den spesialisering studenten velger, enten det er hellige tekster og deres fortolkning, systematisk teologi, etikk, historiske og kulturelle studier av religion, eller empiriske studier av religiøs praksis.

  • Field of research: The PhD programme contains the following seven subject areas: Old Testament, New Testament, Church and mission history, Systematic theology, Practical theology, Missiology, Religious studies. Indicate within which of these subject areas the project is to be placed, and give a suggestion of a preferred tutor amongst the VID Stavanger professors.
  • Project: Preliminary title of the project or thesis. Maximum 100 characters.

It should be a text of 8-10 pages, explaining the project with a focus on problem, sources and method, and relating it to the current research situation. It should also discuss potential legal and research ethical challenges, such as whether the project is dependent on permission granted by committees on research ethics.
