Education period: 4 years (8 semesters)

Programme description:

Education is carried out within the framework of the theological teachings of the Christian religion of the Roman Catholic confession. A person who has a master’s degree and, additionally, a church bachelor’s degree (course ad licentiam), according to the provisions of canon law, may apply for admission. Theological sciences are divided into three main divisions: biblical and historical disciplines, systematic theology, and pastoral theology. The biblical and historical disciplines, which include the biblical introduction, the exegesis of the Old and New Testaments, biblical theology, the history of the Church, the pathrology and the history of dogmas, look for answers to the question about the form of faith in the past and interpret the content of revelation. In the frame of systematic theology, reflection on various aspects of religious doctrine is undertaken. It consists of dogmatic, fundamental and moral theology. The teachings focused on practical theology look for answers to the question of what is the testimony of faith today and analyze new forms of life and activity of a religious community. These include pastoral theology, homiletics, catechetics, missiology, liturgy, canon law, and theology of marriage and family. The choice of the scope of education and the supervisor may be made within the above-mentioned branches of theology, taking into account their specificity and diverse research workshop.

Career opportunities:

Graduates of the doctoral program gain extensive knowledge and professional skills to apply adequate research methods in the field of theological sciences, with particular emphasis on the section related to the research topic being carried out.
