The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Danish / Norwegian / Swedish.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
If the documents mentioned above are not in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or English, they must be accompanied by translations into English. The translations of your diploma and grade transcript must be officially certified translations into English, either by your home institution or a certified translator. The course description may be translated by yourself, but certified by your university.
NB! Your language test results cannot be older than 2 years (incl. CAE, CPE).
When you sign up for an IELTS or TOEFL test, you must also ask the test institution to send your test results to AU. The university will use the results sent by the testing institution to validate your document. The Aarhus University TOEFL code is 8935 (select “Other department not listed”).
It is possible to apply for admission before you have taken your English language test and obtained the required result. Instead you must submit documentation that you have signed up for a test.
Please also provide the following:
1. An official description of the marking scale used at your home university.
2. A copy of a major paper (e.g. Bachelor’s project) which is part of the degree.
!NB As the programme only admits a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme.
Christianity, Judaism and Islam interacting with each other have had a profound influence on the development of European culture and society. For centuries Christianity has been the dominant majority religion; as minority religions, Judaism and Islam have been seen as the ‘other’ against which Christian European identity has been shaped.
The three religions have traditionally been studied more or less separately. The aspiration of Religious Roots of Europe (RRE) is to study the three religions together in their formative periods from a comparative perspective and using a variety of approaches including historical, philological, social scientific and literary.
As a graduate from this programme you will qualify for innovative scholarly work and for further education, e.g. in PhD-programmes, as well as for teaching on religion and intercultural relations. You will also be able to enter into specialised occupations in government institutions or organisations dealing with culture, integration, diplomacy etc. and in private firms for example with business relations with the Middle East.
