Course organisation

Course organisation

Individual skills, social processes, the cultural climate and religious movements affect the view of leadership. During the course Leadership, individual, society, culture and religion 15 hp, we approach leadership contextually. This means that we work with "work-related" issues and try to look at questions and dilemmas from the bottom up perspective. The individual is in interaction with his or her surroundings. The areas we touch are culture and religion, ethics and values, philosophy of life and human perception, language and attitude, organization, organizational structures and leadership theories. The course will include non-mandatory lectures. It is part of the Master's program in Religious Studies, but can also be read as an independent course.

Communication

Seminaries will be given the following dates between 10:15 - 12.00 PM: 21/1, 11/2, 25/2 and 24/3. We will use Blackboard as a means of communication during the course. There will be real time seminaries (see the dates above). Participation is not mandatory and you are able to see seminaries on the webb through zoom. Please, download the zoom app in your device!
