About Lund University
Founded in 1666, Lund University ranks in the top 0.4% of universities around the world in terms of its research and education. In 2019, it was ranked #88 in US News' Best Global Universities.
Lund is a city of approximately 100,000 residents in the south of Sweden, about a 30 minute train ride from Copenhagen, Denmark.
Lund University's Center for Theology and Religious Studies has a robust, interdisciplinary faculty cohort, with a large graduate (MA and PhD) program. Its foci range from Biblical Studies to History of Religions, from Religious Behavioral Science to Islamology.
