Bachelor of Theology and Religious Studies

Interested in the study of theology and religion? The Bachelor of Theology and Religious Studies will prepare you for a vast array of professions with great social relevance. Graduates end up working in education, business, publishing, the media, and the pastoral and socio-cultural sector. But you will be even better prepared for the  job market with a master's degree. Your bachelor degree will give you access to both the Master of Theology and Religious Studies and the Research Master.

About the programme

The three-year Bachelor of Theology and Religious Studies delves deep into the study of Christianity and world religions. It aims to assist the broad development of knowledge in all theological areas and the deep development in particular areas of interest. It promotes research and communication skills, facilitates cultural engagement, and prepares graduates for further theological studies. You will be encouraged to ask questions and to think and write critically and creatively. The programme can be followed (by EEA students) on a full-time or part-time basis. Since the programme is open to students of every nationality, it has major international vibes.

Career perspectives

With an academic bachelor's degree, you have a broad general knowledge, but you are not yet ready for the labour market. The bachelor's in Theology prepares you for a master's programme in which you will further deepen your knowledge. After obtaining your master's degree, you will have a wealth of knowledge and competences and a wide range of career opportunities.
