Master's programme in Theology at Radboud University

The Master's in theology degree at the Radboud University is a comprehensive academic program with four main disciplines: literary, historical, systematic, and practical theology (the study of the source texts of Judaism and Christianity, the history of Church and theology, and of systematic and practical theology). In the programme the students will become adept at analysing the central concepts and practices of faith in order to contribute to the implementation of the tasks of theology in our current world (especially science, church and society). The skills belonging to the scientific disciplines are practiced at a level that will prepare students to further develop independently in one of the chosen specializations and scientific research. In short, the students familiarize themselves with the full spectrum of theology, while given the opportunity to specialise in one disciplinary specialisation.

Personal tutor

The programme is closely linked to the research carried out by the Research Institute for Religious Studies and Theology. A panel of external experts recently evaluated our programme as “extremely good”. What’s more, 88% of our students graduate – an extremely high percentage. This is because we know how to motivate through excellent education and intensive supervision. As a Master’s student you will have a personal tutor and you will work in an inspiring environment with excellent researchers. Nijmegen theologians are internationally recognized as critical, socially involved thinkers.
