Online PhD in Interfaith Research and Diplomacy (DIRD)

Interfaith research and diplomacy is an important and new emerging field of research, notably in view of ongoing inter-religious conflict, mass migrations, and grave issues related to radicalization. In order to address this need at the highest level of academic rigor, EUCLID offers an online PhD in Interfaith Research and Diplomacy which offers a combination of interfaith studies (theology) and international affairs.

Applicants should appreciate that EUCLID is in a unique position to offer the world’s leading online doctorate in interfaith studies:

  • as an intergovernmental university with a specific mandate in inter-religious dialogue
  • as the winner of the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week Prize

The DIRD is an academically balanced non resident doctoral program delivered by a treaty-based and treaty-practicing institution with an explicit mandate in inter-religious diplomacy.

Note: the DIRD (PhD in Inter-religious Dialogue and Diplomacy) was renamed PhD in Interfaith Research and Diplomacy in 2016 but the code DIRD remains the same.

Academic Presentation

EUCLID’s specialized PhD degree focuses on interfaith practice and the actual application of interfaith skills in the community, rather than the advancement of academic knowledge for its own sake. Our program places a special emphasis on contemporary Islam, Muslim-Christian dialogue, modern secularism, as well as de-radicalization and mediation.

Within certain parameters, the roadmap of the doctoral program is customizable, with elective courses focusing on:

  • Specific world religions
  • Inter-cultural issues
  • Mediation and conflict resolution
  • Inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations
  • Radicalization and de-radicalization
  • “A Common Word” and Muslim -Christian relations

Interfaith Visibility in Action

EUCLID is very active and widely recognized for its leadership in interfaith studies. In 2016, EUCLID was awarded the First Prize of the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week from the hands of H.M. King Abdullah of Jordan. EUCLID maintains a dedicated web site at http://interfaith.euclid.int
