Months of entry
Radboud University’s Master’s specialisation in History of Church and Theology is unique in that it combines the study of the history of Christianity with the study of the juridical system of the Roman Catholic Church. As a student you will be trained in systematic historical research, and you will learn how to interpret historical sources of all ages, by analysing them with knowledge of the culture and values of the era in which they were produced.
You will be able to investigate historical developments with a critical and analytical eye. A historical analysis is important as it can also expose the “roots” of current issues and situations. That knowledge in turn can help us understand the present better and even help find solutions to problems contemporary societies face today.
Radboud University and its Theology department are Roman Catholic in origin, but its Master’s programme in Theology is open to all students. Our students have very diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.
What will you learn?
- Learn about the many different elements of religious history and canon law in the Roman Catholic Church
- Choose from a variety of electives and seminars in Church History, Literary Theology or Practical Theology, depending on your interests
- Gain valuable professional and research experience
- Learn how to design, conduct and present your own research
Graduates of this Master’s specialisation can become researchers, policy makers, educators or spiritual caregivers. Careers as journalists, museum curators, librarians and archivists are also possible.
*This is a specialisation of the Master's in Theology
