In today’s university setting, theology is understood as ‘faith seeking understanding’, an academic study of religion that takes place within a pluralist, multi-religious, secular, and interdisciplinary context.
Emphasis is placed on ecumenical perspectives on theological themes and questions, on the study of sacred texts and languages, and on interreligious dialogue, particularly the discourse between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The MA in Theology at Dublin City University will equip you with key cultural, historical and ethics insights, as well as tools for reasoning, critical thinking, and interdisciplinary research.
Whether you’re interested in progressing to doctoral research, pursuing a theology-grounded career, or engaging in theological studies in the context of life-long learning, the MA in Theology course can accommodate your goals.
