From lectures to the student bar
Arab and Islamic Studies is taught at the Faculty of Theology alongside programmes in Theology and the Study of Religion. The study environment at the faculty encourages students across all programmes to meet in lecture societies and at the student bar, Theos Bar.
The library is buzzing with life, with small groups of students settled in the comfortable sofas or working together in the group work areas, or with students and teachers meeting for a cup of coffee between sessions.
The faculty offers great opportunities for you to attend public debates and guest lectures – for example in the student run Society for Arabic Studies - providing inspiration for your work; but you may also choose to become directly involved – as an organiser in the lecture societies, through student politics, as one of the editors of the student magazine Figenbladet (the Fig Leaf), the journal Totem or the bar committee. Finally, student life at the Faculty of Theology also means an annual festival in full dress, Christmas lunch party, the (famous) Christmas revue, spring party, folk high school weekend, boat race, soccer and much more.
