International perspectives on religious education in Europe

  • 7.5 credits

Are you interested in learning about Religious Education in Europe?

The course deals with various types of religious education (RE) that are represented in European state school systems. Religious education in each country is presented in relation to historical and social contexts and to church-state relations. The study of religious education considers macro, mezo and micro levels, and links these together with clear classroom examples. Both confessional and non-confessional variants of RE, as well as the school's relation to religious teaching environments outside compulsory school, are studied and discussed.
