What will I learn?

Study Theology in the wider Catholic Christian tradition, discover the public relevance of Christian practices and doctrines in contemporary society, obtain the necessary skills to identify and discuss intelligently theological influences across a range of perspectives such as economics, the arts, law, history, philosophy, spirituality, health care, medicine, politics, and science, covering issues from social justice to climate change.

What will you learn?

What is the public relevance of Christian practices and doctrines in today’s society? How is meaning attributed to biblical texts? And how have Christians through the ages given meaning and expression to their ideas and expectations? Radboud's theology programme teaches you to answer these kinds of questions from the perspective of one of its five specialisation programmes. In addition to these specialisations, you may take tutorial classes in Canon Law, Old and New Testament Exegesis, Pastoral Theology, Missiology, Theological Ethics, Dogmatic Theology, Spiritual guidance, and Spirituality in the Modern Age. Radboud's theology programme is ideal for students wanting to focus on the relevance of theology for contemporary society.
