Overview

Programme overview

The Master’s specialisation in Practical Theology focuses on theological theory-building to understand the dynamics and meaning of lived religion at four different levels: the personal, inter-group relations, organisational and societal level.

Our department has constructed new, unique methodologies that focus on a qualitative study of narratives, communication, and ritual (liturgy). We have expertise in spiritual biographical research, practice-oriented research and discourse analysis.

What will you learn?

  • Search for theological concepts that match the changing shape of the Christian religion in the life of individuals as well as fresh expressions of religious institutions
  • Benefit from our expertise in survey research, with a specialisation in cross-religious surveys in which Christian believers are compared with believers of other religions (Islam, Hinduism)

  • Gain valuable skills in designing, conducting and presenting your research

Career prospects

The Master’s programme in Theology has a strong emphasis on career prospects by allowing students to focus on one professional path in their third year: research, education, spiritual care or religion and policy.
