Course content

In today’s university setting, theology is understood as ‘faith seeking understanding’, an academic study of religion that takes place within a pluralist, multi-religious, secular, and interdisciplinary context.

Taught by staff with internationally distinguished records in research and teaching, the MA in Theology welcomes students from varied religious and secular backgrounds.

Emphasis is placed on ecumenical perspectives on theological themes and questions, on the study of sacred texts and languages, and on interreligious dialogue, particularly the discourse between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The programme will equip you with key cultural, historical and ethics insights, as well as tools for reasoning, critical thinking, and interdisciplinary research.
