Our research in the field of religious studies has primarily a focus on pedagogical aspects. Pedagogy in religious studies can be understood as an applied or praxis-oriented field of research. The learning experience – in which the knowledge, values and patterns of behaviour of religions and life philosophies are acquired – is of primary interest.
Our research is pursued within the frame of the Centrum för de Samhällsvetenskapliga ämnenas Didaktik (CSD), Centre for Social Science Education. Currently, research on teaching and learning in religious education in middle school is a prioritised CSD area of priority. Together with CSD, a research school for licentiate students is established where at present six research students have an emphasis on religious education. Their degree discipline is Educational Studies with an emphasis on religious education.
