Theology - master's study programme

Continuing bachelor program's focus towards research, the main goal of the master's study program in theology is to prepare students who can:

  • to conduct in-depth research in the sub-disciplines of theology and religion,
  • to present the results of their research,
  • to represent theology and science of science in interdisciplinary academic dialogues and research,
  • to promote tolerance and openness to denominational, religious, and cultural diversity through government, church, and other bodies.

The study process is organized in the form of lectures and seminars. In the seminars, students often analyze previously read scientific works (mostly in English), comparing them with the works of other theorists. A special place in the program is given to the students' presentations and research work. Within the framework of separate courses, students have the opportunity to participate in study tours. Later in the lectures, what you see and hear during the visit is analyzed together. The principle of interdisciplinarity has been observed in the development of the program, considering religion in a broader cultural and social context, thus the program is also open to students whose previous education is not in theology and religious studies.
